As Mike Pompeo begins his Senate hearings and the confirmation process to become our next Secretary of State, the people of New Hampshire will be watching to see if Senators Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen choose to play partisan games with America’s top diplomatic position.

Hassan and Shaheen should think twice before letting politics disrupt our national security and interests abroad. Will Senators Hassan and Shaheen remain consistent and support Pompeo’s nomination, or will they choose to play resistance politics at the expense of America’s national security?
