Press Release
Thursday, June 23, 2016

U.S. congressional candidate Jack Flanagan will discuss his approach to the federal government’s fiscal challenges in an interview that will air online tomorrow at 11 a.m., as part of Fiscal Fridays, the public affairs television series on the New Hampshire-based NH1 News Network.

Flanagan, who is running for the Republican nomination for New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District, will respond to questions about the growing national debt and the fiscal and economic policies he would pursue if elected. Key topics are likely to include Social Security, health care, tax reform, national defense and domestic investments.

Flanagan, the former majority leader in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, currently serves in the state House as the vice chairman of the Labor, Industrial, and Rehabilitative Services Committee.

The half-hour program will be broadcast tomorrow on the NH1 website. Segments of the interview will air Sunday on WBIN-TV, 99.1 NH1 News, and WEMJ 1490 AM. A video of the entire program will be available later on the NH1 website.

Paul Steinhauser, political director and anchor for NH1, will conduct the interview. Viewers can submit questions beforehand on Twitter to @NH1News using #FiscalFriday.

Fiscal Fridays -- a project of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, The Concord Coalition and NH1 -- gives Granite State voters the opportunity to hear candidates for federal office discuss their views on fiscal policy in detail. After this week, the next interview in the series will feature U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), who is seeking re-election, on July 1.
