    The Republican Senate candidates in New Hampshire are bashing their Democratic opponent, Sen. Maggie Hassan, for ignoring the effects of bad economic policy and inflation on everyday Americans.

    The GOP primary still lacks a clear Republican frontrunner, and all candidates have one thing in common - they agree the economy, particularly inflation, is a top issue for Granite Staters this election cycle.

    Don Bolduc, a retired Army general, said he has observed the tangible effects of inflation on families while on the campaign trail.

    "It is inflation," Bolduc told The Daily Wire last month when asked about the top issue facing New Hampshire voters this fall.

    "People can't afford a new car and can't afford the gas. They can't afford their groceries. They're trading all of this, all of these decisions and putting that money towards keeping their vehicle going in order to be able to support their family and get to their jobs," Bolduc said.

    "The question that many of them have is, how high is this going to go, how much are they going to hurt us?" Bolduc continued. "President Biden's policies on energy, his bad policies on energy, has driven this, and Senator Hassan has supported this 100%."

    Bolduc said Hassan is focused on other issues to "take the light off of all the really bad things she's done to Granite Staters and Americans."

    "We're in a terrible spot," he said.

    Bolduc is the most well-known of the Republican candidates after he ran for Senate in 2020.

    Vikram Mansharamani, a finance expert and political outsider, said the "three key issues" on the minds of everyone in New Hampshire are inflation, inflation, and inflation.

    "So I think it's very simple. To go back to the old political line, it's the economy, stupid," Mansharamani told The Daily Wire.

    "That's the pain people are feeling every day when they go to the gas stations or to the grocery store," he said.

    Mansharamani added, "it's not just inflation in the sense of, oh, all my bills are higher. It is targeted in very specific ways to energy, electricity, and food. ... This is effectively a regressive tax. This is a tax on the poor and working class, as well as those who are on fixed incomes."

    Bruce Fenton, a financier who has made millions from Bitcoin, is the most libertarian candidate running against Hassan.

    "The economic situation that we're in is part of the symptom of the overall brokenness of the American economy," Fenton told The Daily Wire.

    "We need to follow the Constitution. We need to go back to the basic principles of liberty and freedom, or we're going to lose our entire country as we know it," Fenton said.

    Kevin Smith, former director of a conservative advocacy group and town manager of Londonderry, New Hampshire, agreed with some of his rivals that the economic issues are the top concern.

    "It's everything from the prices at the gas pump, home heating oil, which is a big deal in New Hampshire," Smith told The Daily Wire. "We're very much a small business state, and so everyone's feeling the pinch right now."

    "She's got her commercials running about how she's taking on big oil and Big Pharma. But really, there's been nothing with regard to home heating oil assistance," Smith said of Hassan. "She really hasn't said a word about it."

    "I have no doubt that when they go to the ballot box in November, they're going to be voting with their wallets," Smith said of his fellow Granite Staters.

    Smith also said he would support legislation to make the U.S. energy independent and make the Trump tax cuts permanent.

    Chuck Morse, the Republican president of the New Hampshire Senate, said he "strongly believes" the top issue is inflation and the economy.

    "It's affecting everyone. I mean ... If I go to a gas station, I hear about it every time I pull in. They obviously want me to do something about it as state senator. But it's an issue right now, whether it's gas or food or anything else. It's all anybody talks about," Morse told The Daily Wire.

    "What's made her vulnerable is inflation and the economy," Morse said of Hassan. "By far, there is no way she can run away from that. It's pretty obvious that people can't afford to pay $5 for gas and they're certainly nervous about what they're going to be paying for heating oil in New Hampshire."

    Morse said the country needs to "stop the spending" and start "living within our means" and go back to being energy independent.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
