ADAM SEXTON: Both candidates saiy this is a race about contrast, and on Saturday, there was a big difference in their locations: Senator Shaheen in Concord and Scott Brown at the UNH tailgate in Durham.
SCOTT BROWN: Well it's going to be about bringing my message not only to the young voters, but to everybody across the state.
ADAM SEXTON: Brown received a high-energy -- and at times rowdy -- reception from students. Locals say politicians don't usually venture into this section of the tailgate party, but College Republicans say that's part of their candidate's allure to the average voter.
STATE REPRESENTATIVE JOE SWEENEY: I think they realize that he's a guy that can represent them, that he's just a normal person like everyone else.
ADAM SEXTON: This weekend Scott Brown delivered the GOP weekly address, taking on President Barack Obama over national security concerns. He says the president's policies are on the ballot here in New Hampshire under the name of Jeanne Shaheen.
SCOTT BROWN: He doesn't have to be here -- she doesn't want him to come here. He doesn't have to come here because he's already been here for six years. She's been bringing his failed policies here for six years.
ADAM SEXTON: In Durham and in Concord, Adam Sexton, WMUR News 9.
