KENNEY PRAISES SENATE CANDIDATE. Former Executive Councilor and state Sen. Joe Kenney is endorsing retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc for the U.S. Senate seat in 2020.
The endorsement came a day after Bolduc was joined in a Republican primary by former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien. The September 2020 primary winner will move on to take on Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in November of that year.
Kenney, of Wakefield, served three terms on the council, representing District 1, before being defeated by Michael Cryans last year. He was a senator for four terms from 2003 through 2008.
