Ayotte files to run for governor of New Hampshire

By Riley King

Yesterday Former U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte was in Concord NH at the NH State House to file to run for governor of New Hampshire.

Ayotte drew a big crowd to the State House in support of her campaign. She said her top issue is keeping New Hampshire from charting a new political course.

"My opponents have a very different vision for the state, and they want to take us down a different path of choice," Ayotte said. "Joyce Craig and Cinde Warmington, they think that the Massachusetts model is a better model than the path that Gov. (Chris) Sununu has us on right now."

Abortion is a hot topic, because Ayotte has come under fire from Democrats on the issue of abortion. She said she will uphold state law and veto any attempts to add further restrictions.

"I will protect that law. I will not change it," she said. "And so, they're misleading the women of New Hampshire right now by making them think that there's going to be something else that will happen."

Meanwhile Ayotte has also been the target of frequent attacks from Republican primary opponent Chuck Morse. Her supporters at the State House scoffed at the idea she's not conservative enough.

"I've known Chuck a long time, and this is a sad way for him to end his political career," Ayotte said.
