A protester was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly attacking New Hampshire Republican Senate candidate Don Bolduc.
Bolduc, a retired Army brigadier general, was able to dodge the attack as he headed into the final debate against his incumbent opponent, Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH), 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,” a Bolduc campaign spokesperson told Boston 25 News.
“Prior to the debate, an individual in the crowd gathered outside attempted to punch the general and was quickly apprehended and arrested,” the spokesperson told the outlet. “We are grateful to the quick response from law enforcement on the scene.”
It is unclear if the individual was a Hassan supporter.
Hassan called Bolduc an “election denier” Wednesday night for getting the endorsement from former President Trump.d
