Kelly Ayotte was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, where she was ranked as one of the most bipartisan senators working across party lines to find solutions to the nation's biggest challenges. During her tenure in the Senate (2011-2017), Ayotte served on numerous subcommittees and chaired the Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness and the Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation Operations. She became a recognized expert on foreign policy, military readiness, revitalizing the private sector to create jobs, tax reform and fighting the scourge of opiate addiction, among other issues. Since leaving the Senate, Ayotte became advisor for Neil Gorsuch as he made the rounds of Senate offices during the successful consideration of him for the U.S. Supreme Court. Prior to her Senate service, Ayotte served as attorney general of New Hampshire. Before that, she was deputy attorney general and chief of homicide prosecution for New Hampshire.
