Republicans are aggressively targeting Hassan given her seat may allow them to regain control of the U.S. Senate in November’s midterms.
“Maggie Hassan is in fact, one of the most vulnerable, if not the most vulnerable Democrat Senate candidate, Democrat incumbent in the country,” said Danielle Alvarez of the Republican National Committee.
“The fate of the United States Senate in some degree could rest on a campaign and a candidate named Don Bolduc,” said Neil Levesque of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.

*The border wall
*18,000 Border Patrol agents.
…and for 87,000 IRS enforcers instead.
