You Say Ayotte I say Eye-otte....

This picture (from the Nashua Telegraph) was taken on October 14, 2012, when RNC Chair Reince Priebus and Senator Kelly Ayotte were out doing door-to-door for Mitt Romney.

Now, fast forward to May 20, at the NH GOP dinner where Senator Aqua Buddha was the keynote speaker, and Reince Priebus was once again gracing our state. From our friends at Concord Patch:

At the NH GOP’s sold out dinner on May 20, Priebus mispronounced Ayotte’s name not once, but twice, calling her “Eye-yotte” and not “Ay-yotte.”

You'd think a guy named REINCE PRIEBUS might have some interest in proper pronunciation of names.

It seems that Kelly Ayotte's decision to be the filling in the Graham/McCain sandwich might have damaged her rising GOP star status, if a guy who had spent a day with her back in October couldn't be bothered to pronounce her name correctly.
