WaPo: "Brown, repeat to yourself three times ‘New Hampshire, New Hampshire, New Hampshire’"
Manchester, NH— In a radio interview yesterday, Scott Brown once again forgot he moved to New Hampshire to run for Senate, and in a momentary break from misrepresenting New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s record, Brown was sounding once again like he was running in his home state of Massachusetts.
In the clip, Brown states, “We’re also a nation of laws and you have to follow a process. If there is persecution going on in a particular country there are mechanisms for you to follow, that you can try to get asylum and other types of assistance but it's not just by showing up at the border and thinking you're going to come here and get all the rights and benefits of our citizens or the people that are doing it the right way. And that's a big difference between Senator Shaheen and me and many other people in the Massachusetts delegation, and Senator Shaheen, in particular, the President.”
“Scott Brown still can’t keep track of what state he’s in—and it’s an insult to New Hampshire families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Brown used to brag about growing up in Massachusetts, raising his family in Massachusetts and said he would die in Massachusetts. Now he's moved to New Hampshire and says he cares about this state, but really he's just using New Hampshire to get himself a Senate seat. How can Granite State families possibly trust a candidate who doesn’t see the difference between Massachusetts and New Hampshire?”
Back in December, Brown also couldn’t keep track of whether he was in Massachusetts orNew Hampshire. Then, in June, his campaign called Worcester, Massachusetts “in town” when referring to New Hampshire.
It seems Scott Brown is developing a pattern.
