GOP Senate Candidate Dodges Punch from Attacker in New Hampshire before Debate

Republican Senate candidate Don Bolduc dodged a punch from a would-be attacker before his debate with Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) on Wednesday in New Hampshire, according to reports.

Bolduc for Senate spokeswoman Kate Constantini said: “Prior to the debate, an individual in the crowd gathered outside attempted to punch the General and was quickly apprehended and arrested.

“We are grateful to the quick response from law enforcement on the scene.

“As the General said on stage tonight, it’s time to lower the temperature of the political discourse in this country.”

Kevin Donohoe, Hassan’s campaign communications director, denounced the attempted assault.

Donohoe said the assailant was a “Libertarian Party activist.”

“Disgusting behavior,” Donohoe said.

“We saw this same libertarian party activist get aggressive with our campaign volunteers at this debate and the last.”

Bolduc said during the debate:

“Repubs and Dems that fuel issues with people that get them to the point where they are just so upset at an individual that they strike out.

“It happened to me outside just before I came in. This is wrong.”

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden held an unscheduled and nationally televised address last night where he demozised GOP voters, who he called “extreme MAGA Republicans.”

During his divisive speech, Biden claimed, without evidence, that Republicans are behind an alleged rise in political violence.

“There’s an alarming rise in the number of our people in this country condoning political violence or simply remaining silent because silence is complicity,” Biden claimed.

“The disturbing rise of voter intimidation, the pernicious tendency to excuse political violence, or at least trying to explain it away — we can’t allow the sentiment to grow.”
