The real reason Kelly Ayotte is against an Obama Supreme Court pick



No one was more surprised than I when New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte came out and declared that she would not consider a Supreme Court nominee from Obama. Not only that, but she was one of the very first senators to do so, right after Mitch McConnell made his announcement. Ayotte is a squishy "moderate" senator who could have been expected to give Obama whatever he wanted after a token fight. So why did she suddenly develop a backbone, and act as one of the first to speak out in opposition?

The answer: this is an election year and Ayotte may be facing a conservative primary challenge.

Conservatives met Wednesday night in Concord to discuss a Republican primary challenge. The meeting did not yield a candidate, but ended with the decision to continue building the framework for an effort to replace Ayotte with someone even more conservative.

“She’s been drinking the Kool-Aid and she’s been liking drinking the Kool-Aid in Washington. And that’s a problem,” said Rep. Steve Stepanek, R-Milford. “It’s a problem for the people who fought for her and worked for her and knocked on doors for her that she is now turning her back on them.”

Former House Speaker Bill O’Brien, R-Mont Vernon, called the meeting.

If O’Brien doesn’t lead the charge, others appear to be ready. Former New Hampshire Republican Chairman Jack Kimball said the key is to ensure the movement gets behind a single candidate.

“We have a very strong conservative base. In 2010, we had about 70 percent of the conservative vote was split between six conservative candidates. We’ve got to come out of this, however this works out, with one. That’s how you win,” Kimball said.

Furthermore, Ayotte may face a conservative third party candidate who could siphon off enough votes from Ayotte to cost her the election.

Aaron Day, chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus in New Hampshire, has vowed to launch a third-party bid for the Senate against Ayotte should the legislature expand Medicaid in the state. According to Day, Ayotte injected herself into the state legislature’s leadership debate, ensuring the Republicans, who control the legislature, elected a House Speaker who would expand Medicaid in the state.

“Republicans were set to return a conservative, who opposed Medicaid expansion, to the Speaker’s chair until Ayotte interfered,” Day said. “She and the GOP establishment think Medicaid expansion will help them politically. They should understand that such an action will doom them politically,” Day told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview.

According to Day, Ayotte and the GOP establishment in New Hampshire think that continuing ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion will help them attract “moderate” voters next November.

Kelly Ayotte gets an "F" from Conservativereview.com. It's only because of the upcoming election that she is talking tough. Any other year and she would servicing Obama as she normally does.
