NH GOP candidate speaking for 24 hours to ‘save the filibuster’, after Biden reveals support to end procedure
Bruce Fenton is a Republican candidate for the New Hampshire Senate Seat. He will be speaking live on Monday, March 24, to launch his “Filibuster To Save the Filibuster” campaign. This comes after President Biden stated that he would support Congress closing the process to pass legislation to protect abortion access.
The filibuster is a technique that allows unlimited debate. It’s when one or more senators speak for a prolonged period of time to prevent or delay the Senate from passing bills.
Fenton spoke with Fox News Digital during the first hours of his protest to preserve the filibuster, and to push his campaign. He discussed his motivations behind the campaign as well as the message he hopes voters will hear.
“In memory of the U.S. Senate filibuster, this is a long speech. I will see how long it takes me to talk about liberty and freedom. Fox News Digital Monday said that the Senate filibuster is an important power and was under threat by the Biden Administration.
BIDEN TO SUPPORT ENDING FILIBUSTER TO PROTECT ABORTION ACCESS
Bruce Fenton, Republican New Hampshire Senate Primary Candidate, speaks for 24 hours in support of’saved the filibuster’ (Bruce Fenton campaign).
Fenton stated in an exclusive statement that he hopes that his efforts will “get people talking about filibuster.” This is something you need in the U.S Senate. You want people who can do the filibuster. Many politicians cannot say more than five sentences without a teleprompter, or someone telling them what they should say.
This comment is made after President Biden repeatedly misread his teleprompter. A ‘talking points card’ was also shown to the president, which directed his movements during speeches. It included reminding him to sit down.
Fenton declared, “What I am doing is a little extreme.” But, Fenton said, “But one thing I really like in my campaign was an open and libre flow of dialogue to be just talking to people, being off-script and answering questions.” Many politicians fear that. Candidates are afraid that they will be asked questions they don’t want. If they are unable to stand heat, they shouldn’t go into the kitchen.

To voters entering the primary, he said “Be informed.” You must be active primaries are very important. While we talk about a red-wave, we must get the right candidates to the primaries. It is a good idea to spend some time learning about the candidates. This is a crucial time, and we must get it right.

U.S. Senate records show that the longest ever recorded filibuster was in 1957 when Senator Strom Thurmond spoke for 24hrs and 18 minutes against Civil Rights Act 1957.
Fenton is a pro-life advocate and Second Amendment fan who is running to represent the Republican Party of New Hampshire in November. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) currently holds the seat. She is running for reelection.
The New Hampshire primary will be held on September 13, 2022.
