Press Release
Thursday, June 30, 2016

U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) will discuss her approach to the federal government’s fiscal challenges in an interview that will air online tomorrow at 10:30 a.m., as part of Fiscal Fridays, the public affairs television series on the New Hampshire-based NH1 News Network.

Ayotte, who is seeking reelection, will respond to questions about the growing national debt and the fiscal and economic policies she would pursue if re-elected. Key topics are likely to include Social Security, health care, tax reform, national defense and domestic investments.

Ayotte was New Hampshire’s attorney general from 2004 to 2009. She currently serves on the  Armed Services, Budget, Commerce, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and Small Business and Entrepreneurship committees in the Senate.

The half-hour program will be broadcast tomorrow on the NH1 website. Segments of the interview will air Sunday on WBIN-TV, 99.1 NH1 News, and WEMJ 1490 AM. A video of the entire program will be available later on the NH1 website.

Paul Steinhauser, political director and anchor for NH1, will conduct the interview. Viewers can submit questions beforehand on Twitter to @NH1News using #FiscalFriday.

Fiscal Fridays -- a project of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, The Concord Coalition and NH1 -- gives Granite State voters the opportunity to hear candidates for federal office discuss their views on fiscal policy in detail.

Earlier the series featured presidential candidates in both parties.
