Kelly Ayotte’s fundraising bravado: ‘They’re messing with the wrong Senator’

Faced with withering and unrelenting criticism for her vote against expanding background checks for gun purchasers, Sen. Kelly Ayotte responds — by fundraising:

I urge you to make a generous contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more to help me defend the Second Amendment and set the record straight.

Bloomberg and his radical allies are going to great lengths to try to discredit me, and it’s appalling. One quick look at my record and you’ll see I’ve always been tough on criminals, while remaining a staunch defender of the Constitution.

They think that I’m an easy political target, but they’re messing with the wrong Senator. Because they can’t bully me into throwing my values and beliefs out the window.
