While the latest PPP poll shows the guv in a dead heat with Kelly Ayotte in the US Senate race, her favorability rating takes a hit--dropping from 50 to 43, with disgruntled Dems accounting for most of the fall. Blame it on her anti-Syrian refugee stance.
ANNIE KUSTER: Maybe sensing the Hassan fallout, the 2nd CD congressperson takes to the airwaves (NHPR) to defend her vote (the same as Frank Guinta) on a Syrian refugee bill opposed by the White House.
KINDER MORGAN: It can't be a good thing when a US senator (Ayotte), a governor (Hassan) and two congress-people (Kuster and Guinta) come out against your gas pipeline project.
JEB BRADLEY: The Senate majority leader jumps on the Christie bandwagon in NH with his announced endorsement.
LAURIE SANBORN: The GOP state rep from Bedford lays the groundwork for a challenge of Shawn Jasper as speaker of the NH House.
JENNIFER HORN: A couple of right-wing activists, Aaron Day and Joe Barton, launch an online petition calling on he state GOP chair to resign following her statement in the Boston Globe that "shallow campaigns that depend on bombast and divisive rhetoric do not succeed in New Hampshire, and I don't expect that they will now."
