Don Bolduc on Principles & Values



Lost to GOP establishment; building grassroots organization

Bolduc confirmed that he's running again for the U.S. Senate - he says he'll take on Sen. Maggie Hassan in 2022. The Laconia native said his loss in the Sept. 8 Republican Senate primary to Corky Messner was, in his opinion, a loss to the GOP "establishment," and he said he will spend the next two years building a strong grassroots campaign organization for another run. Bolduc filed a statement of candidacy less than a week after the general election, with the Federal Election Commission.

Not for Black Lives Matter, but Everyone's Lives

Q: Do you support the Black Lives Matter movement?

Bolduc: I support the Everyone's Lives Matter movement.

Q: What does that mean because I'm not I'm not familiar with that movement. I'm hesitant to say it even exists. Are there marches for All Lives...?

Bolduc: It doesn't exist. And that's the problem. I think when we when we categorize people and we put things in stovepipes, we're channeling ourselves in a way that's very divisive because nobody is going to be able to understand each other.

Forts named for Confederates a "symbol of hope"

[On Confederate heritage]: "Military forts were named for a reason and that is the history that we must accept, not change," Bolduc continued. "And when people ask me, 'well, it's just a symbol of racism.' No, it's not. It's a symbol of hope. It's a symbol of inspiration. It's a symbol of moving forward. It's a recognition of our history that we're not proud of, but we need to grow through and become stronger. That's what America is about. That's why we're the greatest country in the world."

Leadership mantra: People, Family, Mission

I have a leadership mantra, 'PEOPLE, FAMILY, MISSION'--they aren't just words, they are my guiding principle that I learned growing up on the Bolduc family farm and in Laconia. In my 32 years of active duty service in the US Army, those words were never far from my mind. I won't let special interests or partisan politics get in the way of my new mission, serving as your United States Senator.
