NH Dems Ask: Did Ayotte “Just Pull a Sarah Palin?”

Posted July 8, 2009 at 12:43pm

New Hampshire’s state Democratic party released a web ad Wednesday comparing Republican state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte to Alaska Republican Gov. Sarah Palin.

Ayotte on Tuesday announced her resignation as Attorney General to explore a bid for U.S. Senate. Palin on July 3 announced her resignation as governor and has left the door open to future political endeavors, including a presidential campaign in 2012.

Palin received harsh blowback from some colleagues for leaving office mid-session.
