October 06, 2017

(Washington, DC) — Today, Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement after Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter announced that she will not seek re-election in 2018:

"Throughout her career, Carol has been a stalwart defender and champion of New Hampshire,” said Shaheen. “New Hampshire's first district has been well served by her tireless devotion to the middle class and the most vulnerable in our society. As the first woman to be elected to New Hampshire's federal delegation, she's a trail blazer in her own right, who has been a fearless advocate for women's equality. I look forward to working with her through the remainder of her term, and to seeing what the future brings."
