LYING: Messner a “Carpetbagger,” Moved to NH to Run for Senate

At tonight’s debate, Republican U.S. Senate candidate “Colorado Corky” Messner lied about his opportunistic move to New Hampshire to run for Senate.

FACT: Messner is a Colorado millionaire who moved here in 2019 to try to buy NH’s Senate seat.

  • Messner launched his exploratory committee for U.S. Senate as a nonprofit in Colorado, registered with the Colorado Secretary of State.

  • His law firm is based in Colorado and he is not even barred to practice in New Hampshire.

  • He voted in New Hampshire for the first time in 2018, and therefore has never voted in a New Hampshire U.S. Senate race.

  • As recently as August 2020 (not a typo), he was making political contributions using his Colorado address.

  • He still owns a multi-million dollar home in Colorado.

P.S. He’s also a fake Patriots fan.
