Today is Leap Day, and vulnerable Senator Kelly Ayotte must be excited to have an extra day this year to try and re-write her record of voting with the Koch Brothers nearly 90 percent of the time her first four years in Washington. Unfortunately for her, this extra day will serve only to highlight just how out of touch she is with New Hampshire families – especially when it comes to her unprecedented obstructionism and refusal to do her job on the Supreme Court vacancy. Looks like she will have to keep dodging editorials that call her out for putting “party politics ahead of the constitution” for yet another day.
So while today seems like any other day, it’s really one more day that Ayotte has to hide these damaging pieces of her record:
· Siding with her party to shut down the nomination of a Supreme Court justice, a position that will leave the vacancy open for almost an entire year if Ayotte has her way
· Voting 6 times to defund Planned Parenthood
· Voting over and over to end Medicare as we know it
The list goes on, but we would need a second Leap Day to get through them all.
“This year, Kelly Ayotte has an extra day that she could be using to work for the people of New Hampshire, but instead she will spend her Leap Day blocking the nomination of a Supreme Court justice and pushing the party line for her special interest backers,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “With her uphill battle this year, Kelly Ayotte probably wishes she didn’t have an extra day to face the voters back home.”
