Manchester, N.H. – Jeanne Shaheen’s bipartisan efforts to make a difference for Granite Staters are the focus of her campaign’s new television ad. The ad features Granite Staters highlighting Senator Shaheen’s leadership protecting jobs at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, delivering a tenfold increase in opioid funding for New Hampshire, working to stop surprise medical bills, getting veterans health care options closer to home and outside the VA, and securing resources for our health care providers and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“No one fights harder for New Hampshire than Jeanne Shaheen, and Granite Staters in every community know they can call her and she will make a difference for them,” said campaign manager Harrell Kirstein. “When critical projects at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard were threatened, Jeanne Shaheen led the bipartisan effort to save it, protecting local jobs and vital national security priorities. During the pandemic, and in every crisis facing New Hampshire, Jeanne Shaheen works across the aisle to deliver for Granite Staters, and she’ll never stop.”

The new 30-second television spot includes Chad Gamache from Concord, Dwight Davis from Newfields, Kathy Cavallaro from Rye, Peter Vellis from Bedford, Glen Sell from Nottingham, Lindsey Randlett from Litchfield, and Dan Chartrand from Exeter.

When the Trump administration tried to divert as much as $244 million from construction projects at PSNY to pay for a border wall, Jeanne Shaheen led bipartisan efforts to block them, and ultimately saved the shipyard’s funding. Since 2014, Shaheen has led Congressional response efforts to the opioid crisis, taking on her own party to increase funding, and delivering a tenfold increase in funding for New Hampshire’s treatment and prevention services. Working with Republicans and Democrats, Shaheen has helped lead legislation to stop surprise medical bills, and she took on her own party to make sure New Hampshire veterans could get health care closer to home and outside the VA. During the pandemic, Shaheen has led efforts to secure PPE and funding for New Hampshire health care providers, and the bipartisan Paycheck Protection Program that she created has delivered $2.5 billion to New Hampshire small businesses and helped save more than 200,000 jobs.
