Sen. Kelly Ayotte to Rick Santorum: Stay Away from Gay Marriage

| by Michael Allen

During an appearance on MSNBC this morning, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) said that Rick Santorum was "getting off message" and Republicans should avoid discussing the state’s effort to repeal its 2009 marriage equality law (video below).

Sen. Ayottee also said she did not agree with Rick Santorum’s argument that marriage equality would lead to polygamy: "I really think, the issue, the focus of this primary is on the economic issues and while certainly among Republican voters there are strong feelings on the social issues, but the focus on New Hampshire in terms of the number one issue is going to be spending, size of government and how do we get people to work, so I think he’s really getting off message there."
