Women's advocacy group hires plane to fly over NH slamming Sen. Kelly Ayotte


MANCHESTER — A national women's advocacy organization commissioned a plane to fly over the city with a sign slamming Senator Kelly Ayotte for her comments earlier this week in which she referred to Donald Trump as a role model.

The plane, hired by UltraViolet, carried a banner that read "HEY AYOTTE SEXIST TRUMP IS NO ROLE MODEL" on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte has since withdrawn her statement that Donald Trump is a role model, but still endorses the Republican presidential nominee.

“Donald Trump, a ‘role model’ - seriously? After Trump’s called women pigs, dogs and slobs, insulted a former Miss Universe winner’s weight, and bragged about not paying his taxes, it’s truly mind-boggling to figure out how Senator Ayotte can possibly think that. Voters in New Hampshire certainly don’t,” explained Karin Roland, Chief Communications Officer for UltraViolet Action. “Even after Ayotte walked back her comments, her continued support for Donald Trump proves just how out of step she is with New Hampshire women and constituents.”
