On this specific bill
"Kelly Ayotte has voted four times against the federal Paycheck Fairness Act."
A consistent critic
Kelly Ayotte "has voted to defund Planned Parenthood" six times.
Squeaky clean record
"A simple review of the Backroom’s health code records will reveal that the restaurant already has a long-standing problem with rodent infestations."
Highest in state
Says New Hampshire’s second congressional district includes two counties where "almost 5 percent if not more" of residents are enrolled in the state’s expanded Medicaid program.
Uncommon but not unheard of
"For more than 80 years, there has not been a nomination and confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in a presidential election year. This is simply not the time to break with decades of bipartisan practice."
Superdelegate math is pretty simple
"Given the results of the primary, the vote of one New Hampshire superdelegate is equal to the votes of about 10,000 grassroots activists."
Not even close
"Drug overdoses are now the second-most common cause of death in New Hampshire."
Blocking a U.S. Supreme Court nomination during the remaining months of President Obama’s term "would leave the nation’s highest court with an unprecedented year-long vacancy."
Well, not exactly
"In New Hampshire, I spent $3 million. Jeb Bush spent $44 million. He came in five, and I came in number one."
On appeal, he did
"Ted Cruz defended a Chinese company that stole an invention from an American inventor."
That's not exactly what he said

Maybe someday, but not now
"We now have more jobs in solar than we do in oil."

In 2008, she did
In 2008, Maggie Hassan voted against legislation to "prevent sanctuary cities in New Hampshire."
Majority is female
"The vast majority of (Syrian) refugees are young, able-bodied men looking for work."
It's been bleaker
"If you're born poor, you're more likely to stay poor than any time in American history."
Evidence doesn't support claim
Birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger "believed that people like me should be eliminated."
Taxes and fees would go up
Gov. Maggie Hassan’s budget proposal "raises taxes on small businesses and increases taxes and fees by $100 million."
