NHDP - US Sen Ayotte Votes Repeatedly to Play Politics with National Security

Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Vice Presidential hopeful Kelly Ayotte’s attempt to spin her way out of trouble after voting repeatedly to play politics with national security:
“Kelly Ayotte has voted four times to play politics with the safety of New Hampshire communities in order to appease her Tea Party base. Now, with funding for the Department of Homeland Security set to expire on Friday, Ayotte is trying to spin her way out of trouble and hoping that nobody will notice that she’s been holding DHS funding hostage for weeks.”
“New Hampshire voters won’t be fooled by Kelly Ayotte’s 11th hour attempt at damage control, and we will not forget that she was willing to risk shutting down DHS to try to appeal to her base and position herself for a Vice Presidential nomination.”
