This week, Scott Brown was focused on foreign policy, the failures of the Obama/Shaheen agenda and his vision for a stronger America. He delivered a major foreign policy address, released a new television ad and crisscrossed the state to talk about his plans to protect America's freedom. Throughout it all, Brown was focused on his belief that border security and national security are inextricably linked, and one can't exists without the other.
Meanwhile, Senator Shaheen came under fire for missing critical hearings on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee having to do with the rising threat of ISIS.
With under 40 days to go now before Election Day, we need all of your help to spread Scott's message by making phone calls, knocking on doors and talking with your friends, neighbors and co-workers. Please see below to find out how you can get involved and help Scott win on November 4th.
On Wednesday at The New Hampshire Institute of Politics, Brown delivered a major foreign policy speech called "Protecting America's Freedom" that focused on the importance of securing our border and dealing with the threat of ISIS head-on.
Speaking about the incoherent Obama-Shaheen foreign policy that has allowed ISIS to run rampant across the Middle East, Brown said, "This is what foreign policy looks like without any clarity and conviction. This is what the world looks like without American leadership."
The speech was well-received from both local and national press, with the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin writing, "That is how a Republican runs on foreign policy - from the right and with a record of responsible leadership on tough issues. He is spot on with his big picture assessment..."

It's Time To Restore America's Leadership In The World
Along with the big speech Scott gave, we released a new television ad this week on the ISIS threat and the need for aggressive leadership to keep our country's borders secure from those that would do us harm.
In the ad, Scott notes that while President Obama and Senator Shaheen seem confused about the nature of the threats to our country, he is not. He goes on to say that he wants to secure the border and keep out the people who want to do us harm, because protecting the homeland is the first step to making America strong again. Watch the ad HERE and be sure your friends check it out too.
"I'm Going To Do My Own Thinking And Speak For The Independent Spirit Of Our State"
Contunuing with the foreign policy theme, Scott Penned an op-ed in today's Union Leaderabout the importance of keeping America secure.
Citing examples of Senator Shaheen continually backing President Obama's failed foreign policy, Scott wrote that he would be a different kind of leader, one who stands in resolute defense of America's interests and, regardless of party politics, makes sure our nation remains strong and free. Read the full op-ed below:
Bedford residents Charlie and Helen DePrima are our volunteers for this week. Helen writes, "We're working to help Scott Brown become our new Senator because gaining control of the Senate is vital to achieve legislative control for the final two years of the Obama administration. We also trust that he'll consider each bill proposed on its own merit without blindly following the herd." Thanks so much to you both for supporting Scott and working to see him elected!
Brown Calls For Seven General Election Debates
On Monday, Scott accepted seven general election debate invitations to give the people of New Hampshire the opportunity to hear an open and honest discussion between the candidates.
For nearly two years, Senator Shaheen has refused to hold a single town hall meeting, so it’s even more important for there to be a series of debates sufficient in number to give the people of New Hampshire the opportunity to understand the differences between Scott Brown and Senator Shaheen.
We are hopeful that Senator Shaheen will do the people of New Hampshire the favor of answering questions on the same stage with Scott about the important issues of the day.
