NHDP Statement on Ayotte Claiming She Didn't Have Enough Lead Time To Attend Today's Event Recognizing Shipyard Workers and NH's Economy

Manchester, NH--The New Hampshire Democratic Party released the following statement after Senator Kelly Ayotte's office claimed she was not given enough lead time to be in Portsmouth today to show her support for our shipyard and its workers.

"It's a shame that Senator Ayotte couldn't put politics aside for once to stand up for our shipyard and its workers. We are disappointed by her petty behavior and that she missed an opportunity to showcase the strength of our shipyard to the Vice President."
