Ayotte and Toomey’s Anti-Trump Opportunism Fails

(Before It's News)

From a piece I did for LifeZette. No doubt, were Trump way ahead in their states, these two senators would be putting their “reservations” about the GOP nominee aside and embracing him.

Two Republican senators facing brutal re-election battles in critical presidential battleground states have damaged themselves and Donald Trump by failing to flatly endorse the Republican presidential nominee.

Sens. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, respectively deadlocked with New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan and former Bill Clinton adviser Katie McGinty, have each refused to endorse Donald Trump. But their equivocation probably hurts them more than it helps. They’ve cast themselves to voters as opportunists trying to please everyone while allowing their opponents to continually badger them about Trump.

By straddling the fence, she has the worst of both worlds. She is telling voters she can’t quite bring herself to take a stand and … she keeps herself still open to criticism.

Meantime, Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, once thought vulnerable, took a stand by endorsing Trump and is up in the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls by 13 points over former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.
