NHDP: Karl Rove Spending Special Interest Money Trying to Buy Our Senate Seat For Scott Brown

Time for Brown to Sign the People's Pledge
Concord -- New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement after Karl Rove's $650,000 worth of attack ads to help his candidate, Scott Brown, began polluting New Hampshire airwaves this morning. This brings the total Big Oil and Republican special interest backed third party spending to more than $1.5 million in the New Hampshire Senate race.

"In Massachusetts, Scott Brown said the people deserved better than having their airwaves polluted with third-party ads, so he signed the People's Pledge to stop those attacks.  In New Hampshire, we have a message for Scott Brown: We deserve better, too, and he should sign that same People's Pledge for New Hampshire.

"These new attack ads, paid for by Karl Rove and his special interest money are more proof Big Oil, Wall Street and Republican third party groups think they can buy our Senate seat for Scott Brown. As the Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown voted like he was the Senator from Big Oil and Wall Street. He gave them billions in special breaks, and they gave him millions in campaign contributions. In the Senate, Jeanne Shaheen stood up to Big Oil and voted to stop those special breaks.  She's leading the fight on a bipartisan effort to lower energy costs for consumers and help create jobs. The people of New Hampshire know Jeanne Shaheen is working to protect their interests, not Big Oil and Wall Street.”
