Senator Kelly Ayotte’s record of partisanship continues to hurt her re-election chances, but it’s her support for Donald Trump that’s most damning of all. From calling Trump’s candidacy “a positive thing” to saying she trusts him, the senator regularly finds herself in a twist over the GOP nominee but won’t revoke her promise to vote for Trump. It seems he can do anything — attack a Gold Star family or call women “fat pigs” and “dogs” — Senator Ayotte still wants to hand over the nuclear codes and the economy to unpredictable and erratic Donald Trump.
Before tonight’s debate, watch Senator Ayotte promise to cast her ballot for Trump — no matter what:
“I’m going to be voting for him.”
“I’ve said I’m going to be voting for our nominee…”
Kelly Ayotte trusts Trump.
Under no circumstances will Kelly Ayotte renounce her support of Trump.
“I agree with Donald Trump.”
No matter how hard she tries to spin it otherwise, it’s still clear — Senator Kelly Ayotte believes Trump is “a positive thing.”
