by Kimberly Morin May 20, 2016

Yesterday both Senators Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen voted for a radical bill that hands over local control of your neighborhood to the federal government.

by Skip March 18, 2016

Kelly Ayotte had better stop being wishy-washy on SCOTUS nominee

by Skip March 16, 2016

Three: “I believe strongly that the people of New Hampshire must have a say in this extraordinarily important debate. With so much on the line for the future of our country, the Senate should not proceed with a confirmation process until the American people have spoken by electing a new president in November.” Two: And […]

And so it begins – the US Senate Republicans poke a hole in their Supreme Court dike.

by Skip February 22, 2016

I knew it wouldn’t last long before some squish Republican US Senator would start the wimping out – it is who they are.  They were elected to do ONE thing: stop Obama and the Progressive agenda for which he stands.  Any.Way.Necessary.and.Possible.  Full Stop.  You only have one job to do to keep this country moving […]

Thumbnail image for Ayotte Takes a Page From Jeanne Shaheen’s Campaign Playbook

Kelly Ayotte has announced her support for ‘The People’s Pledge’ by asking Governor Hassan to sign on. If you forgot what that is, Jeanne Shaheen tried to foist in on Scott Brown in the 2014 US Senate race after he lost to Liz Warren when they both signed on in 2012. If an independent third […]

Thumbnail image for Ayotte Camp Provides List of Known or Potential Threats to State Sovereignty

Over the past 5 years Sen. Kelly Ayotte has proven herself to be a threat to local control, local politics, state sovereignty, the party platform, and our State and Federal Constitutions. Perhaps not as much of a threat as Maggie Hassan but the bar is set so low at this point as to be more […]

Since You Brought It up, It Was the GOP That Moved The Goalposts

by Steve MacDonald January 6, 2016
Thumbnail image for Since You Brought It up, It Was the GOP That Moved The Goalposts

Does the Union Leader consider Sen. Kelly Ayotte to be an ‘actual Republican’? I’d really like to know because the other day they published an editorial titled 11 Conservatives and Trump. In it they posit the notion that all the Republican presidential primary candidates are conservatives (except Trump I suppose) and that those who claim otherwise […]

“I wanted to share a look back at some of the work I’ve been doing for you in Senate”

by Skip January 5, 2016

That was from an email I received from Kelly Ayotte, the junior Senator from NH.  She’s running for reelection and I’ve been getting a bunch of her emails touting her “accomplishments”.  No, I’m not going to post it here – especially as it leaves out some of her accomplishments that, well, don’t sit well with […]

Says the guy solidly from the Republican Establishment…

by Skip December 14, 2015

Seriously, he’s just got to be funnin’ us all, right?  And I bet he said the same thing about Havenstein and Brown, too: “Kelly’s support among the Republican grassroots runs deep, and any suggestion to the contrary is obviously false,” said Steve Merrill, a former governor and chairman of Ayotte’s campaign. “She continues to deliver […]

NH Senate Race: Two pathetic candidates in an historical cat fight

by Kimberly Morin December 12, 2015

Yesterday WMUR released an update on their campaign reports in which they discuss the dueling petitions between incumbent Senator Kelly Ayotte and Governor Maggie Hassan, running for the same seat.

  I found a fine glossy piece of mail in my mailbox today, addressed to my wife. It promotes Senator Ayotte’s environmental street cred as a way to build a mailing list. The purveyors want you to “say thank you” to the Senator for her defense of statist environmental policy the environment. By defense, they mean her […]

John DiStasio may have the story – but backwards?

by Skip November 2, 2015

I read this post that seemingly has blown the cover of a “secret” meeting concerning Sidenote:  if this was supposed to be “secret”, who couldn’t keep their mouth shut?  Or is seeking “fame by proxy” by running to blab?  Either way, I hope they feel great about themselves in betraying a Trust that is no longer […]
