Sen.-elect Ayotte Gives GOP Address

Senator-elect Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) gives this week's Republican address, focusing on what Republicans seek to accomplish in the 112th Congress. Here's the video link. How encouraging to start the new year, and the new Congress, with yet another rising star.

Given the liveliness of Kentucky's Senate race, I had not focused on Ayotte previously. Her speech is well-written and well-delivered. It is particularly poignant as she discusses the need to remain vigilant in the the War on Terror from her perspective as a military spouse.

Ayotte's comments on the size of government and the debt underscore that she is a fiscal conservative. I look forward to seeing what she will accomplish in the 112th Congress -- she strikes me as someone who will work hard to learn the nuances of the Senate. Great to see a conservative woman with gravitas.
