Manchester, NH – Today, General Don Bolduc reacted to President Joe Biden’s release of 15 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in December by reminding voters that Senator Maggie Hassan has supported the President’s failed energy policy every step of the way:
“Winter is coming, and the Biden-Hassan energy policy is leaving too many Granite Staters out in the cold. For nearly two years, Joe Biden and Maggie Hassan have done everything in their power to reduce domestic energy production. In fact, at yesterday’s debate, Hassan even took credit for pushing Biden to turn to the SPR. They would rather do business with brutal dictators in Venezuela, Iran and Saudi Arabia than support our own homegrown industry. Now, facing the brutal consequences and with a midterm election looming, their only solution is releasing more of our emergency supply of oil, leaving us vulnerable to future supply shocks and whims from evil despots. It never had to be this way: America has the resources to power our country right here at home. For those facing tough choices between heating and eating, you’ve got Joe Biden and Maggie Hassan to blame.”
During yesterday’s debate in North Conway, Hassan bragged that the Biden Administration released oil from the SPR “at my instigation.” Watch here.
