Sen. Kelly Ayotte

Ayotte led the charge against the Obama administration’s dangerous plan to close Guantanamo Bay and release those terrorists or transfer them to U.S. soil. She helped pass legislation prohibiting the transfer of terrorists to U.S. soil and shed light on the threat the terrorists pose.

Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror, and Ayotte believes tough talk alone is not enough. She opposed the dangerous Iran nuclear deal and pushed for strict new sanctions on Iran.

Ayotte called for a comprehensive strategy to defeat ISIS that had credibility with the American people. That included working with our allies in the region; bringing together NATO; increasing special operations raids and improving air strike capabilities; enhancing our intelligence efforts and fighting ISIS’ online recruitment and propaganda.

“I know that to keep America safe, we need to be vigilant and we need to support those who defend our nation.”
