Ayotte comments on US Senate race after Hassan declares herself winner


Although still apparently in a dead heat, Gov. Maggie Hassan declared Wednesday that she’d won New Hampshire's U.S. Senate race, unseating Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

During a hastily-called press conference outside the State House, Hassan said she’s ahead now by enough votes to survive returns from the few outstanding towns that are left.

“I am proud to stand here as the next United States senator from New Hampshire,” Hassan said to cheers from a large group of supporters led by Congresswoman Annie Kuster and Hassan’s husband, Tom.

Kelly for New Hampshire spokeswoman Liz Johnson released the following statement regarding the New Hampshire Senate race:

"This has been a closely contested race from the beginning and we look forward to results being announced by the Secretary of State, and ensuring that every vote is counted in this race that has received an historic level of interest."
