Sen. Kelly Ayotte to start re-election campaign in Manchester

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte is officially kicking off her re-election campaign this week.

Ayotte told supporters in an email Sunday that she will start campaigning for a second term on Tuesday, with a rally in Manchester. She says she is running again because she wants to continue fighting for New Hampshire.

Ayotte, a former state attorney general, was elected in 2010, when she defeated Democrat Paul Hodes. She will hold another rally on Wednesday in Jefferson.

Gov. Maggie Hassan is widely considered to be the Democrats' strongest candidate to take on Ayotte. She has said she won't decide on a Senate run until the state budget is settled in Concord.
