Video: Gov. Maggie Hassan's Elevator Pitch to Voters on Her Run for U.S. Senate


Last year, we started asking the presidential candidates who stopped by NHPR's offices to deliver their best "elevator pitches" on the way into our studios. Now that we're heading into the final stretch of the election season, we're reviving this feature — this time, with the candidates for statewide office.

First up: Gov. Maggie Hassan, who's running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte. Hassan joined NHPR's The Exchange on Tuesday for an hour-long conversation on her record as governor, what she hopes to accomplish in the Senate and more.

Here's what she had to say when asked for her pitch to voters this morning.
