First on CNN: With new ad, Democrats try to paint Scott Brown as Mitt Romney

Washington (CNN) -- A new political ad against Republican Scott Brown could easily have been an attack ad against Mitt Romney in 2012.
One of the toughest spots to hit Brown this cycle, the 30-second ad paints the former senator from Massachusetts as a "yes man" to a large corporation that has outsourced jobs.
While the ad never mentions Romney, who campaigned for Brown this summer, the outsourcing attack was a key strategy used by Democrats two years ago when Romney, a former private equity executive, was running for president.
In the ad, released by Senate Majority PAC, the Democratic group highlights Brown's ties with Kadant, a Massachusetts paper company that named Brown to its board of directors last year.
Brown was ousted from Congress in 2012, but he's now fighting to reclaim a spot in the Senate, this time from New Hampshire where he's challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
