BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW TV ADS: "KEEP AMERICA SAFE" & "BROKEN PROMISES"
Both Spots End With Same Tagline: "Jeanne Shaheen, Standing With Obama, Not New Hampshire."
“Keep America Safe” highlights Brown's 35-year military career in the Army National Guard, as the narrator says Brown "knows what it takes to keep America safe." The ad contrasts Brown’s military background and vision to restore a stronger America with Shaheen's record as a silent shadow for President Obama. As a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, Shaheen was absent for a critical 2013 hearing where top officials "gave an early warning about a new terrorist group known as ISIS."
The second ad shows footage of Jeanne Shaheen’s 2008 election night pledge, where she declares “Today, New Hampshire voters said they want a senator who will be a strong, independent voice. … I am going to be that senator!” It then points out that since then Shaheen has stood with Obama, and the ad concludes with Shaheen’s statement from her 2014 re-election filing when she admits, “nobody is right 99 percent of the time.”
