Ayotte visits Washington

Former New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte (R) is in Washington today as she cues up a run for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.).

The Hill's Walter Alarkon saw Ayotte walking with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman John Cornyn (R-Texas) this afternoon.

A source said she is "introducing herself to Senators, committee staff and others as part of the exploration process."
