DSCC - Two Ayotte Opponents Seize On Her Refusal To Say Who She Voted For 

In response to Kelly Ayotte’s refusal to tell the Union Leader who she voted for in 2006 and 2008, two of Ayotte’s likely primary opponents proudly asserted their support of Republican candidates (clips below). Ayotte’s comments enraged other New Hampshire conservative activists here:


As former Gov nominee, Ovide voted GOP in 06 and 08

Another one of Kelly Ayotte's potential Republican primary opponents for the U.S. Senate is gladly pointing how that while she won't say how she voted for governor in 2006 and 2008, he will.


Manchester attorney Ovide Lamontagne, the 1996 GOP nominee for governor, said he understands what it is like to run and that he supported the Republican message.


"In 2006 and 2008 I supported and voted for Jim Coburn and Joe Kenney for Governor.  I know what it means to be the nominee of my Party and fight for Republican principles of smaller, more efficient government, lower taxes, reduced spending and individual freedom and liberty.  For me, I had deep reservations about the Democrats in Concord who, like Paul Hodes and the Democrats in Washington, have embraced increased spending, higher taxes and bigger government as the solution to our current economic crisis.  This is entirely the wrong approach, and the concerns that I had in 2006 and 2008 are shared by many more people today."


In an interview published this morning Ayotte refused to say how she voted for governor. It is an interesting question given that Democratic Gov. John Lynch re-nominated her twice to be Attorney General and won both times with over 70 percent of the vote. Earlier today another potential Senate primary opponent, Sean Mahoney, said he voted and contributed to the Republican nominees those years.


Mahoney: I was proud to vote for Coburn and Kennedy

In response to a Union Leader interview this morning where former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte refused to say how she voted for governor in the last two contests, one of her potential primary rivals said he was happy to vote and financially contribute to the Republican nominees.


"I was proud to vote for both Rep. Coburn in 2006 and Sen. Kenney in 2008," said Mahoney. "In fact, I went even further and supported each of their campaigns with $500 contributions because their Republican message of lower taxes and less government spending resonated with me, particularly as it was in it was in direct contrast with Gov. Lynch's record. I commend and thank both Jim and Joe for stepping up and fighting for Republican values and was proud to have voted for both of them."


Ayotte, a Republican re-nominated by Democrat Lynch, said she didn't want her record as AG to be politicized.
