NH Senate Candidates Ayotte, Hodes Debate

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Democrat Paul Hodes (hohdz) is making his fourth run for federal office, but he says it's his Republican opponent Kelly Ayotte (AY'-aht) who is driven by political ambition.

Hodes, who ran unsuccessfully for the House in 2004 before winning the first of two terms in 2006, faces Ayotte in the November election for the U.S. Senate seat held by retiring Republican Sen. Judd Gregg. Ayotte is a former attorney general who's never run for office.

In a Monday debate, Hodes repeatedly brought up e-mails Ayotte sent as attorney general in 2006 in an attempt to portray her as someone who put politics ahead of the public. Ayotte countered that Hodes was attacking her to avoid talking about what she said was his record of reckless government spending.
