ICYMI – Delaney Headlines New Hampshire Dems Annual Dinner in Fourth Campaign Trip to Granite State
WASHINGTON – Last weekend, Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) made his fourth campaign trip to New Hampshire since launching his presidential campaign this summer. Congressman Delaney headlined the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Kennedy-Clinton Dinner in Hollis on Friday and hosted a coffee with Young Democrats Saturday morning in Manchester.
- The dinner was headlined by three Democrats in the U.S. House, Reps. Grace Meng of New York, Tim Ryan of Ohio, and John Delaney of Maryland. This past summer, Delaney said he wouldn’t run for re-election and instead announced he was running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
- Delaney, making his second trip to the first-in-the-nation primary state this month, took aim at President Donald Trump, saying “hyper-partisan politics is tearing our country apart. Hyper-partisan politics prevents us from getting anything done.”
- “What we really need a president to do is to bring us together, to restore civility in politics and respect in public service. To begin a dialogue about the things we agree on. The Democratic Party can do it. Donald Trump can never do it,” he said. “But we can and this is our moment.”
- Declared 2020 Democratic presidential candidate John Delaney, a Maryland congressman, gave an optimistic address about the ideals of working Americans and called for an end to partisan bickering on Capitol Hill.
- Delaney said 60 percent of Americans live in parts of the country that are not economically thriving.
- “We are basically writing off two-thirds of the American children in this country from having that American dream,” Delaney said. “We have become not a country of everyone having an equal shot but a country of birthright, for those who were born in the right parts of the country.”
