Kelly Ayotte, former U.S senator of New Hampshire, will speak in Roanoke’s Bast Center on Monday, Oct. 30 at an event sponsored by the Henry H. Fowler Program. Ayotte served as attorney general in New Hampshire prior to becoming a U.S. senator in 2011. Her work on foreign policy, tax reform and the issue of military readiness made her a driving force in the Senate, and she was discussed as a potential running mate for Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election. After leaving her Senate position in July, she became an advisor to Neil Gorsuch, an associate justice of the Supreme Court. This event, which will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., is open to the public and free to RC students. Tickets are required. They are available online or at the Colket Center Information Desk. There is a limit of six tickets per person.
