Maggie Hassan in 2016


  • The Republican men — and, yes, they are all men — running against me are all pushing an extreme, anti-choice agenda. ... If elected to the Senate, they would ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest. They would defund Planned Parenthood. They would vote for justices who will take away the constitutional rights of American women. And anti-abortion activists are already plotting a push for a national ban on abortion — and my opponents would be right there with them. That is their agenda. But I have taken on anti-choice opponents before and won — and together we will do it again.
  • I want to take a minute to thank Don Bolduc for a hard-fought campaign and I want to thank Don Bolduc for his service to this country. We have differences, but we share a love for this country
    • [1] said Hassan, before turning her message of unity to Granite State voters
  • I promise you, Democrats, Independents and Republicans — the people who voted for me and those who did not — that I will keep working every day to serve you faithfully, to listen to you and to work with you to address the challenges facing your families, our state and the country
    • [2] Sen. Maggie Hassan held onto her seat in New Hampshire
  • I will keep reaching out to colleagues from both sides of the aisle defined shared goals and the common ground and compromise necessary to help families and small businesses with the challenges that they face, like the high cost of housing and childcare
  • In order to have an economy that works, we have to be safe. The safety of our citizens and our nation is always government's first responsibility. And I will keep working to support our brave men and women of law enforcement and to keep our country safe
