Dover, NH – Eddie Edwards, a Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, released the following comment on the looming government shutdown:
"There is no better evidence that Washington is broken than the fact that our elected officials are blatantly unable to pass legislation to keep our federal government fully functioning. Career politicians are failing us as partisan liberals in the U.S. Senate have proven that they would rather shut the government down than agree to compromise. Jeopardizing funding for our military, national security, and other vital services is unacceptable. We should demand better because the American people deserve better."
