Too bad Ayotte has a stinky record and the grassroots does not support her.
- Did not prosecute voter fraud
- Did not prosecute Ruth Griffin
- Did not prosecute kiddie porn charge on Dem Party Chair
- Helped Dem Governor try to grab JUA funds
..and the list goes on.
We don’t trust this woman!

Be interesting how it play out. Now that is it Ayotte’s seat to lose. Instead of Judd Greg’s incumbent seat.
