The DSCC released a new ad highlighting how Senator Kelly Ayotte puts outside special interests ahead of hard-working New Hampshire families. She might say one thing in New Hampshire, but in Washington, Ayotte has voted to protect tax breaks for big oil companies and millionaires, while opposing legislation to let Granite Staters refinance their student loans. The DSCC previously launched http://ayottefacts.com/ so New Hampshire voters can learn how Ayotte repeatedly puts her corporate special interest backers ahead of Granite Staters.
The ad, “Know” can be viewed HERE.
“Regardless of whatever political gymnastics she attempts next, Senator Kelly Ayotte’s record in Washington speaks for itself – letting big oil companies get big tax breaks while average people pay more for student loans,” said Sadie Weiner, DSCC Communications Director. “Ayotte consistently puts her corporate special interest backers ahead of hardworking New Hampshire families, and Granite Staters deserve better. In the Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan will fight to put New Hampshire first no matter what.”
