After months of a “vote for but won’t endorse” strategy with Donald Trump, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte finally tells the truth: Donald Trump isn’t trustworthy.

As her opponent Gov. Maggie Hassan’s numbers trend upward, Kelly Ayotte continues to say she will vote for Trump, but won’t “endorse” him. That GOP hair-splitting has not worked in most states, and it isn’t working in New Hampshire.

Now, in an interview with the editorial board of the New Hampshire Union Leader, Ayotte finally admits that Trump, the man she will vote for, “hasn’t always been trustworthy.”

Ayotte is wrong about Hillary, but certainly right about Trump.
