Demo­crats in New Hamp­shire and Nevada on Monday and Tues­day called on likely 2018 GOP gubernat­ori­al can­did­ates to weigh in on Re­pub­lic­ans’ fed­er­al health care over­haul plan.

New Hamp­shire Demo­crat­ic Party Chair Ray Buckley: “24 mil­lion Amer­ic­ans are pro­jec­ted to lose cov­er­age in the next ten years un­der Trump­care. Any plan that hikes rates and kicks tens of mil­lions off their cov­er­age should be de­nounced in loud terms but Gov­ernor [Chris] Sununu has yet to provide his opin­ion on how the spe­cif­ics in this bill will im­pact Gran­ite Staters.” (re­lease)

Nevada Demo­crat­ic Party spokes­per­son Stew­art Boss: “With Re­pub­lic­ans pre­par­ing to gut the Af­ford­able Care Act, the most na­kedly par­tis­an At­tor­ney Gen­er­al in Nevada his­tory [Adam Lax­alt (R)] now sud­denly wants voters to for­get that he ran for of­fice as a right-wing cru­sader against the ACA. … While Lax­alt is pre-oc­cu­pied with plot­ting his next polit­ic­al cam­paign, hun­dreds of thou­sands of people in our state are wor­ried this GOP plan could rip away their ac­cess to health care. Nevadans de­serve to know wheth­er Adam Lax­alt is go­ing to stand up to pro­tect low-in­come fam­il­ies or fight to help his bil­lion­aire mega-donors like Shel­don Ad­el­son get a fat tax cut.” (re­lease)
