Earlier this week, New Hampshire Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte (R) was under fire from her primary rivals for her office's response to a massive Ponzi scheme.

Businessman Bill Binnie (R) released two new TV ads Monday that featured testimonials from victims of the Financial Resources Mortgage collapse, which cost investors millions of dollars. 

On Friday, Ayotte responded with an ad that hits Binnie for being a "liberal." The 30-second spot is airing statewide on cable and broadcast, according to a spokesman for Ayotte.
