Paul Hodes seems confused. For the past month, he has been relentlessly trying to bestow upon himself the coveted title of “fiscal conservative.” He’s spent tens of thousands of campaign dollars on TV ads about getting rid of pork, and has repeatedly used rhetoric tying Ayotte to the vague and sinister “establishment.” Now, he’s using [...]

The campaign of Democratic Senate hopeful Paul Hodes appears to have gone back to the drawing board in a new “contrast” ad against Republican nominee Kelly Ayotte.
