On Tuesday, we reported on Senator Kelly Ayotte’s (R-NH) statement Monday night that may have allowed her opponent, Governor Maggie Hassan, to get the edge she needs to steal the seat.
Ayotte got caught in a web of her own words, proclaiming Donald Trump a “role model” for children and then being asked to explain why she won’t endorse him.
“Because I’ve had some disagreements with him…” she added, looking lost.
She later corrected herself: “I misspoke tonight. While I would hope all of our children would aspire to be president, neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton have set a good example, and I wouldn’t hold up either of them as role models for my kids.”
But it may be too late. Because Hassan is hanging her with her own words, along with Donald Trump’s.
