MANCHESTER, N.H. New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte conceded the Senate race to Gov. Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening.
he concession announcement comes after Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan declared victory in the closely-watched U.S. Senate battle against the Republican incumbent.
"I just spoke with Gov. Hassan to congratulate her on her election to serve in the U.S. Senate," Ayotte said in a statement. "I wish Gov. Hassan, her husband, Tom, and their children, Ben and Meg, the very best."
Hassan is pledging to work with President-elect Donald Trump "when it's in the best interest of New Hampshire and the country," and she promises to stand up to him when it's not.
I am SO glad we aare rid of that McLame and Graham ass kissing idiot with a perpetual frrog in her throat..She was horriffic and neess to do something she is more cut out for.....like teaching Pilates or something
NeverAyotte . . . stupid RINO. We are better off with a democrat in the slot - at least we won’t get knifed in the back.
kirk and ayotte gone...not bad!
Ran away from Trump and paid the price. Sane with Heck in Nevada. Winnable seats. GOP= stupid party.
Although I want us to have as much power as possible in the senate, she was a backstabbing RINO. Won’t miss her.
Good riddance to bad rubbish!
50 or 59 Republican Senators makes no practical difference.
Cull now, replenish later
Its a good thing we have the senate. One of the other things I want to do other than unseat traitor Angus King is to really hound Hassan for whatever she does. If she so much as breaks wind in the Senate chambers well be all over her like white on rice.
Enjoy taxan Hassan! Its your only term you're gonna get!
Could’ve had a nice career ahead of her, had she stuck with the ones who brung her.
Oh well. See ya!
“when it’s in the best interest of New Hampshire and the country...”
Translation: Don’t hold your breath.
Strange... New Hampshire was once a conservative state.
I wouldn’t even care if the door hit her in the butt on the way out.
Along with the bloke in Nevada the Senate candidate who did the most to distance herself from The Donald.
Let that be a lesson to the rest of yinz.
Too bad - but Kelley backstabbed Trump so enjoy your private life loser.
Heck, Glenn and Ayotte: so stupid to run against Trump. There was no reason except to please the media- which they could never so as well as a Dem anyway.
Kirk was gonna lose no matter what so I don’t blame him.
Agreed. Good riddance to this establishment puke.
No loss, just a shedding of sheep’s clothing by the wolf.
Dumping Ayotte and Kirk is fabulous. With the next election cycle, maybe the penchant for these RINOs to bash conservatives and Trump will not get ridiculous like this year.
As bad as she was she would have been a vote for Senate control (Which is huge when you are trying to implement your policy!) Also she is a potential vote for a Supreme Court justice. Where with a Rat the probability of a potential vote is near zero!
