At last night’s New Hampshire Senate debate between Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic challenger Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Ayotte made a little news when she answered “absolutely” to a question on whether or not she considered Donald Trump a role model:
Sen Ayotte, asked if Trump is role model: "there are many role models that we have, and I believe he can serve as president & so absolutely"

She has since changed her mind, saying neither candidate is a role model for kids:

Oof. This is going to be bad as every other GOP candidate is going to get this question now:
This is bad for Ayotte, but imagine how many other House & Senate candidates are about to get hit with this question https://t.co/Mx9XDkXxwg

You might want to put down that shovel – the hole's plenty big enough as it is. https://t.co/IIcHl9u1O7

Pence should get asked the role model question at the debate tomorrow night.
It just might be trickier for him than you'd think …
