WASHINGTON, Feb 10 - A member of the Federal Election Commission on Friday called on President Donald Trump to share any evidence he has to support a statement that voter fraud caused him and former Senator Kelly Ayotte to lose in New Hampshire in the 2016 US election.

"The scheme the President of the United States alleges would constitute thousands of felony criminal offenses under New Hampshire law," FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub said in a statement.

Trump blamed voter fraud for his and Ayotte's losses in New Hampshire in November's election while speaking on Thursday with a bipartisan group of US senators, saying that Ayotte's re-election bid was spoiled by "thousands" of people from neighboring Massachusetts voting in New Hampshire, according to media reports.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton narrowly won New Hampshire's four electoral votes by nearly 3,000 votes, while Ayotte, a Republican like Trump, lost by only 743 votes.
