Another Republican Announces a Bid To Run Against Sen Maggie Hassan
A cryptocurrency entrepreneur is the latest Republican seeking to challenge U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire. Bruce Fenton, who describes himself as a Bitcoiner and free markets advocate, announced his campaign Wednesday, saying he will run on a platform of freedom, human rights, free markets and peace. He is the CEO of Chainstone Labs in Portsmouth and managing director of Watchdog Capital, a licensed securities brokerage firm. Hassan, a Democrat, is seeking her second term in Washington. In addition to Fenton, six other Republicans have announced campaigns, including Retired Army Brig. Gen Donald Bolduc, state Senate President Chuck Morse and former Londonderry town manager Kevin Smith.
