Kelly Ayotte Adds Another Extremist to Her Ranks with Don Bolduc Endorsement

Today, former U.S. Senator and Republican candidate for governor Kelly Ayotte announced that failed Republican nominee for U.S. Senate and noted election denier Don Bolduc has endorsed her campaign for governor.

Bolduc is just the latest in a long line of extremists that Ayotte has courted throughout her campaign for governor. Throughout the 2022 election, Bolduc made several false claims about the 2020 election being “stolen” from Donald Trump in an effort to win over the former president and his base, including claiming there was “significant fraud,” and that “school buses brought thousands of people into the state to vote illegally.” Bolduc also “bragged about his willingness to reject certifying the 2024 results if elected.”Bolduc, like Ayotte, is also an anti-abortion extremist.

Bolduc has said the Supreme Court “made the right decision” when overturning Roe v. Wade, said that “decisions on abortion rights belong to ‘gentlemen’ state legislators,” called for Planned Parenthood to be “defunded,” and called IVF “a disgusting practice.”

Bolduc joins a long list of extremists backing Kelly Ayotte’s campaign, including:

“It’s no surprise to see Don Bolduc embrace Kelly Ayotte: the two U.S. Senate losers have both proven they will do and say anything – including embracing far-right conspiracy theorists, backtracking on their own word, and putting themselves ahead of Granite Staters – to win votes,” said DGA States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “Don Bolduc and Kelly Ayotte are cut from the same cloth, and just as Granite Staters rejected Bolduc in 2022, they will once again reject Kelly Ayotte and her extremist agenda this year.”
