An ad criticizing presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio for voting against the Violence Against Women Act will not be making it to the airwaves in New Hampshire, after the state’s GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte objected strenuously.
The ad, created by a presidential Super PAC supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich, featured Ayotte’s support for reauthorizing the law, which became contentious and political in 2012 and 2013. The Senate GOP split on the question, with Ayotte among the vocal supporters. Rubio, a Florida Republican, opposed it.
