Brown For US Senate - CAMPAIGN RELEASES EXPANDED 60-SECOND VERSION OF "LEEANN" AD 

I Know He Will Be There For You Like He Has Been For Me"

 

MANCHESTER - The Brown campaign today released an expanded 60-second version of the television ad featuring Scott Brown's sister, LeeAnn, reflecting on their childhood and the supportive role of her protective older brother.
 
The ad will run for the next week in combination with the shorter 30-second version on statewide New Hampshire cable and WMUR-TV.
 
In the ad, LeeAnn describes in emotional terms the challenges she faced arising out of abuse in the home and how Scott Brown protected her. She says Scott played both a “father role, as well as my brother,” and that, “There was physical abuse in the home. Sometimes he had to protect my mom, physically.” 
 
LeeAnn, who lives in Portsmouth, adds, "If Scott wasn't there for me, I don't think I would have gone to college. I don't think I would have graduated high school."
 
The ad closes with LeeAnn saying, “I love my brother, and I know he will be there for you like he has been for me.”

TRANSCRIPT:

LEEANN RILEY: We grew up with nothing, we came from nothing

My mom was working a lot

Several jobs and she worked at night as a cocktail waitress and he was responsible for watching me

We moved a lot
 
Our mom was married and divorced many times
 
There was physical abuse in the home

Sometimes he had to protect my mom, physically

Myself, I'd say he protected me emotionally

Scott acted as my father role, as well as my brother

He would cook dinner, he would go to father-daughter events with me

Probably if Scott wasn't there for me, I don't think I would have gone to college

I don't think I would have graduated high school

I love my brother and I know he will be there for you like he has been for me
