MEMO: ​Kelly Ayotte Has Been A Disappointment Representing The Granite State In The U.S. Senate

Sep 01, 2016

Tonight, Senator Kelly Ayotte will appear in the first debate of the New Hampshire Senate race against Republican primary opponent Jim Rubens. The debate sets the stage for the Granite State to see how much of a disappointment Kelly Ayotte has been during her first term in the U.S. Senate. From not doing her job to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, to voting with her party elders 90% of the time instead of prioritizing the people of New Hampshire, it’s clear that Ayotte’s allegiance to her party trumps that of her constituents.


New Hampshire deserves to know exactly how misleading and disappointing Ayotte truly is. Despite painting herself as an independent voice, Ayotte has failed to represent the people of New Hampshire on women’s health issues, making college affordable, protecting Granite state seniors’ medicare and social security, doing her job on national security by showing up to Homeland Security hearings, and instead sides with billionaire special interests and Washington Republicans.


Take a look at how Kelly Ayotte has been a disappointment for the Granite State: 




  • Ayotte made refinancing student loans and going to college out of reach.
    • Ayotte voted against lowering student loan interests rates, thwarting borrowers from refinancing their loans like many Americans refinance their home. Additionally, she voted to take away need – based grants from students. In the 2013-2014 school year, Pell Grants provided college financial aid to nine million students.


  • Ayotte has turned her back on national security by not doing her job and putting our nation’s safety at risk by supporting Donald Trump.
    • When it comes to national security, she doesn’t show up to work. She missed nearly half of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security hearings, and two-thirds of the hearings the committee held on drug trafficking.
    • Even with 50 GOP national security experts opposing him, Ayotte wants Trump to be the Commander in Chief.
