Mitchell Asks if Rice Criticism a Ploy to Get Scott Brown Back to Senate

Sen. Kelly Ayotte: 'Absolutely absurd'

BY:

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) Wednesday if the sharp criticism of Ambassador Susan Rice is a part of a multi-step Republican plan to restore Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate:

MITCHELL: There's a suggestion that has been made that this is a Republican attempt to get her so wounded that John Kerry is then nominated instead, which would then open up a vacancy in Massachusetts that Scott Brown would be teed up for. Is there an effort her that has to do with Senate politics, raw politics?

AYOTTE: Absolutely absurd, Andrea. I would remind you, this is an issue I was pursuing–and others –long before the election, before we knew whether Scott Brown was going to win that election. I think that claim is absurd.
