Right now, Kelly Ayotte says she's not even thinking about rumors that she may be a potential running mate for likely GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The junior U.S. senator, who today met with roughly 100 local business leaders at a New England Council breakfast at the Bedford Village Inn, said her primary focus right now is representing New Hampshire and doing her part to improve the country's current economic state.

"It's a great honor to be mentioned, but the best honor I could have is the job that I have right now, which is to represent the people of New Hampshire in the U.S. Senate," said Ayotte. "I look forward to working with my colleagues to solve and really get our fiscal house in order in Washington and then create a strong climate so we can grow our economy."
