RINDGE - Today, Scott Brown visited the campus of Franklin Pierce University and addressed a group of students about the important issues of the day. The University was supposed to be the site of the first U.S. Senate debate, but Senator Shaheen declined to attend.
"I am disappointed that Senator Shaheen didn’t show up for our first debate, but I enjoyed visiting Franklin Pierce and meeting with students,” said Brown. "I appreciated the opportunity to speak with students and faculty members about the serious challenges facing our nation, and my vision for a stronger America with more good-paying jobs and a foreign policy that once again leads the world.”
Brown spoke to 100 students at Spagnuolo Hall where the two Senate candidates were originally supposed to debate.
Scott Brown has accepted seven general debate invitations, while Jeanne Shaheen has only accepted 3 televised debates.
In addition to refusing to attend Franklin Pierce Universtiy, Shaheen has also refused to participate in WGIR's NH Today radio debate with Jack Heath.
