Concord - Endangered North Carolina Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) today flip-flopped her position on a travel ban on Ebola "hot zone" countries, announcing her support for it only two days after she opposed it. Senator Jeanne Shaheen continues to stand with President Obama and oppose a commonsense travel ban.
"Senator Shaheen continues to stand with President Obama and oppose a travel ban from countries afflicted by the Ebola virus. Her blind allegiance to the President's failed policies is shameful and proves that she is unwilling to provide independent leadership for New Hampshire," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It's time for Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama to impose Ebola travel restrictions to keep Americans safe from disease."
Senator Kelly Ayotte, Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown and even liberal Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter support travel restrictions on Ebola affected countries.
