Jim Rubens, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement on Scott Brown's declaration of candidacy:
"We now have a two-man race between Washington's pick and grassroots New Hampshire voters who will make their choice on September 9th. The Rubens campaign is fully funded and fully staffed. We're uniting the Republican Party across the spectrum and we will win the September primary and November general.
"The millions in big money necessary to defeat Jeanne Shaheen in November will follow the candidate who wins the September primary."
“New Hampshire voters are astute, demanding and want answers to all the tough questions. Jim has been answering these questions and earning grassroots voters’ support throughout the state. More than ever in polling history, voters are fed up to the teeth with business-as-usual Washington politics and Washington career politicians,” said Brian Tilton, Rubens’ communications director.
Rubens adds, "Senator Shaheen has fallen badly out of touch with New Hampshire. It's important that Republicans select a nominee who represents New Hampshire and will contrast Senator Shaheen on all the issues where she is wrong: Dodd Frank, 2nd Amendment rights, Syria bombing war, Obamacare.”
