To The Daily Sun,
I just watched another political ad by Kelly Ayotte, where she claimed once again that she is an "independent" senator, who constantly works the "other side of the aisle." It gets very tiring hearing her say this, because it makes her look weak and ineffectual. If she had been either independent or worked across aisles, she would not have to be telling us now, it would be understood.
The real truth is, Kelly Ayotte and the word, "independent" are opposites, and her voting record clearly points that out. Please take the time to look it up — it's very easy to do — and will show Kelly Ayotte's voting record to be very bland, not one hint of independence, nor even a small step across the aisle. In fact, her record would suggest she would need her GPS system to find the other side of the aisle.
The United States Senate, with its 100 elected members, is one of the most powerful bodies in the world, and Kelly Ayotte has had her chance to make her mark, six years to show us she really cares about New Hampshire, and all Americans. She has done practically nothing of note on the positive side, just gone dutifully along with the old Republican Party every time.
And all those ads that depict Kelly Ayotte as caring about seniors — just more campaign bull; her voting tells a much different story. Why, she would not even cast a vote for the Supreme Court nominee, a task we elected her for, not some Republican ploy to hopefully hold out for, for Donald Trump, whom she recently said was a great role model for children? And what kind of American, especially a U.S. senator, writes a letter to an enemy nation, telling them you do not support your own leadership?
We live in arguably the best state this nation has to offer, by any number of measures. Our schools are highly rated, unemployment is half of what the rest lives with, great business atmosphere, and much more. Maggie Hassan deserves some of the credit as our leader. Kelly Ayotte had her chance, and wasted it. It's Maggie Hassan's turn. Vote Maggie Hassan for U.S. senator on Nov. 8.
