What They Are Saying: Scott Brown Delivers Republican Weekly Address
This week New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown, who served in the Army National Guard for 35 years before retiring as a colonel, delivered the Republican Weekly Address. Click here to watch the address which was released this morning.
In the address, Brown stressed national security concerns and the lack of the leadership under President Obama: "So many challenges, so many threats and problems – and all at the same time. Yet the Obama administration seems only more confused as things unravel. This is what the world looks like without American leadership. So it’s hardly surprising that national security is a central issue in this election. I believe our state deserves an independent senator who will put party loyalty aside, and put our national interests first, each and every time—rather than simply voting with President Obama 99 percent of the time."
Brown also emphasized the need to secure our borders and the importance of caring for our veterans: "We can secure our own border. We can maintain a military superiority that no rival will dare to question. We can restore this great country’s leadership in the world, and everything rides on our success. As President Obama said recently, he’s not on the ballot but his entire agenda is. That’s your invitation to send the clearest possible message to the establishment in Washington. Elect Republicans to the House and Senate, and we will bring that big-government agenda to an end. And we will set this country on a better, safer path."
