From “Live and Learn” to “Get Over It”: Don Bolduc Stumbles Into the General Election

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

To say that Don Bolduc had a rocky start to his first week in the general election would be an understatement. Bolduc started off the week by trying and miserably failing to mislead voters about his record of denying the results of the 2020 election. Then, after getting roasted by everyone — including Stephen Colbert — for blatantly trying to hide his record, Don Bolduc capped off the week with a disastrous interview on WMUR, where he told New Hampshire women to “get over” the potential for a nationwide abortion ban.
