“Scott Brown Has Barely Stopped Moving Since Announcing”; “Setting A Relentless Pace”; “The Best New Hampshire Candidate I Have Ever Seen”

WMUR’s James Pindell: “I spent all day with [Brown] on his first day on the campaign trail on Saturday. It was just him, his wife Gail, of course, in the truck, and I’m following them with my dog in the back, and he was – I got to say, I’ve been covering New Hampshire politics just for 12 years, for a dozen years: he is the best New Hampshire candidate I have ever seen.” (WGBH’s “Greater Boston,” 3/17/14)
 
·         Pindell: “In Dover, he met privately with a handful of activists. In Rochester, he stopped at a diner to shake hands and have lunch. In Wakefield, he parked his truck next to a barbershop and held court with those eating at a another small diner around closing time. In North Conway, he popped into shops, drank a local beer, and met with about 20 activists at in invite only gabfest.” (James Pindell, “Brown begins NH 'listening tour,” WMUR, 3/15/14)

WMUR’s Adam Sexton: “[Brown] has really hit the ground running … so far Brown is setting a relentless pace. He finished out the night pouring pints at the Wild Rover in Manchester.” (WMUR, 3/17/14)
 
New Hampshire Public Radio’s Josh Rogers: “[Brown] worked the room, posed for pictures, and said voters across the country and here in his new home state of New Hampshire, want to toss Democrats from office for supporting  so-called Obamacare.” (Josh Rogers, “Scott Brown Makes The Rounds Through Vote-Rich Southern N.H,” New Hampshire Public Radio, 3/17/14)
 
The New Hampshire’s Phil Boynton: “I think a Brown candidacy can win in New Hampshire. He isn’t a bitter partisan. He’s a pragmatist – a man looking to bring people together and focus on common sense solutions to many of the daunting challenges facing our nation. He’s a traditional Republican; the kind of Republicans that once dominated all throughout New England. And Brown candidacy and victory in New Hampshire may bring about the Republican renaissance we sorely need.” (Phil Boynton, “From the Right: Scott Brown, New Hampshire and ObamaCare,” The New Hampshire3/18/14)

New Hampshire Citizen Terry Cooper: “I think the chance to change things up is definitely called for.” (WFXT’s 10 PM News, 3/15/14)
