“Prior to the debate, an individual in the crowd gathered outside attempted to punch the General and was quickly apprehended and arrested.”
New Hampshire Republican Senate candidate General Don Bolduc’s campaign said a man tried to assault him before he took the stage to debate incumbent Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan. From Boston 25:
“As the General said on stage tonight, it’s time to lower the temperature of the political discourse in this country. 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,” said a Bolduc campaign manager.
The Bolduc campaign spokesperson referred further questions to the Goffstown Police Department. Boston 25 contacted the department but were advised to call back Thursday morning.
Bolduc brought up the attack in the debate:
Bolduc referenced the altercation near the end of the debate, when he and Hassan discussed the brutal attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband at their San Francisco home.
The GOP Senate nominee said “it’s a sign of political problems. Republicans and Democrat, that fuel issues with people that get them to the point where they are just so upset at an individual that they strike out at them. Happened to me outside just before I came in. Right. This is wrong and it needs to be stopped.”

Here is the video of "First Amendment Auditor" Joe Hart being arrested for allegedly assaulting @GenDonBolduc before his debate with Maggie Hassan in Manchester tonight. They do this routinely, and it's how they make money on YouTube. https://t.co/vAkI6HETPV @Cernovich

On Wednesday, authorities charged a Chicago man for threatening IL GOP gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey. Now Bolduc. Yet all we hear about across the MSM is the attack on Paul Pelosi.
Thank goodness Pelosi is going to recover. Violence is never the answer. I just wish the MSM would give equal coverage and outrage on all attacks and threats on politicians.
The New Hampshire senate race is much closer than many thought and could be a significant part of the predicted red wave.
RealClearPolitics gives Hassan a 0.5% average but ranks the race as a toss-up while projecting a GOP pickup.
The Cook Political Report has the race as Likely Democrat.DONATE
