Following the leader: Hassan campaigns in Ayotte's shadow
New Hampshire Union Leader
It’s easy to predict where Maggie Hassan will stand on controversial issues.
Just read Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s press releases, and wait a day.
Ayotte was among the first to call for suspension of the Syrian refugee program until adequate screening could be provided.
Hassan, running against Ayotte, fumbled over her position before coming to the same conclusion. Facing immense backlash from her liberal base, Hassan has since tried to temper her support for pausing the refugee program.
On issues that cut across party lines, Hassan is running in Ayotte’s shadow.
