ICYMI: Morse Kicks Off Filing Period by Attacking Ayotte’s Record and Refusal to Debate

Republican candidate for Governor Chuck Morse kicked off today’s official opening of the state candidate filing period by slamming Kelly Ayotte on NH Today with Chris Ryan, calling out her record on education and immigration while serving in the U.S. Senate. 

“She started out as a conservative when she went down to Washington, but she came back as the third most liberal U.S. Senator,” Morse said, “She also voted against education for low-income families.”  

For months, Morse has criticized Ayotte every chance he gets — driving the gubernatorial primary into increasingly ugly territory that even prompted GOP leaders to beg their candidates to stop fighting. Morse continues to put Ayotte on blast for refusing to debate him, flip flopping on immigration policy, and her refusal to renounce an endorsement from State Rep. Jon Stone, who was fired from his job as police office after he “threatened to kill fellow police officers in a shooting spree, and murder his chief after raping the chief’s wife and children, all while he was already under scrutiny for his inappropriate relationship with a teen girl.” 

“Summer is heating up, and so is the messy Republican primary for governor, where both candidates are competing to see who can stake out the most extreme and toxic territory,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “While Granite Staters look for a gubernatorial candidate who will stand with them and take on the very real challenges they are facing, Chuck Morse and Kelly Ayotte are focused on attacking one another, dividing their own party, and ensuring that whoever makes it to the general election will do so with their deeply unpopular extremist agenda on full display.”
