- Associated Press - Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire has conceded and congratulated her Democratic rival Gov. Maggie Hassan.

In a statement late Wednesday, Ayotte said the voters have spoken and “now it’s time all of us come together to get things done” for the people of New Hampshire.

Ayotte, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and leader on defense issues, said it was a tremendous privilege to serve one term. She thanked her family and supporters.

The Associated Press had not called the race because Hassan had a lead of just 0.1 percent.
