Republican Bill O’Brien launched his campaign Tuesday to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, accusing her of catering to the “liberal elite” while emphasizing his experience as a businessman and former speaker of the New Hampshire House.
O’Brien is one of two Republicans seeking their party’s nomination for the seat Shaheen has held for two terms. The other, Retired Brig. General Don Bolduc, announced his campaign last month. Ahead of an evening announcement rally in Manchester, O’Brien unveiled his campaign website early Tuesday, calling himself a “common sense conservative and lover of freedom” and contrasting Shaheen’s record with his position on a range of issues, including immigration, health care and the economy.
