GOP CANDIDATE ATTACKED – Senate Hopeful Don Bolduc Dodges Punch by Alleged Assailant Prior to Final Debate

Brian Bolduc following attempted assault at his final senate debate.

Republican senatorial candidate Don Bolduc took the lead for the first time over far-left Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) in New Hampshire’s Senate race, a Tuesday Saint Anselm poll revealed.

Hassan is polling at 47 percent, which is well below the 50 percent threshold for an incumbent senator.

Prior to the final debate on Wednesday night, Don Bolduc went out to greet supporters. As he walked out to greet the cheering crowds a man jumps in his face, several supporters then jumped in to help Bolduc. And Don Bolduc tells police the man tried to hit him.

Don Bolduc is a veteran and retired US Army Sergeant who served his country for 33 years.

The New York Post reported:

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

Bolduc, 60, a retired Army brigadier general, was apparently unharmed, and the individual who attempted to assault the Senate candidate was arrested, according to his campaign.

“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,” a Bolduc campaign spokesperson told Boston 25 News.

“We are grateful to the quick response from law enforcement on the scene,” the spokesperson added.

It is hard to make out the confrontation from this angle.
