NHDP - ICYMI: Brown Not Truthful About New Hampshire Roots 

Key Point: “He says he was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard -- and yes, that is technically in Maine. He says his dad was an airman at Pease and his mother was a waitress at Hampton Beach. And he says that his family goes back nine generations in the state and he is even ‘a son of the American Revolution out of Newington.’
 
“But there isn't a Newington chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, there is just a statewide chapter. And Bob Walsh, the New Hampshire chapter president, says Brown isn't a member. Records show that Brown is a member of the Massachusetts chapter.”
 
 
WMUR: A key to Brown's NH roots still brings it back to Mass.
UPDATED 9:10 AM EDT Oct 28, 2014
 
Whenever Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown is asked about his New Hampshire roots he has a stock answer.
 
He says he was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard -- and yes, that is technically in Maine. He says his dad was an airman at Pease and his mother was a waitress at Hampton Beach. And he says that his family goes back nine generations in the state and he is even "a son of the American Revolution out of Newington."
 
But there isn't a Newington chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, there is just a statewide chapter. And Bob Walsh, the New Hampshire chapter president, says Brown isn't a member. Records show that Brown is a member of the Massachusetts chapter.
 
Membership for these chapters don't require residency. In fact the New Hampshire chapter has members from Florida and West Virginia.
 
The Brown campaign said the Newington reference was where his family lived during the revolution.

NHDP - Brown Voted to Cut Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Support for Women Owned Businesses 

Manchester, NH—With the election a week away, the choice between Scott Brown and Jeanne Shaheen couldn’t be clearer when it comes to support for women-owned businesses. As Jeanne Shaheen is today highlighting her commitment to supporting New Hampshire jobs and women-owned small businesses, Scott Brown’s record further proves that he’s wrong for New Hampshire.  When in the Massachusetts State Senate in 2006, Brown voted in support of then-Governor Romney’s deep cut to the Affirmative Market Program, which promoted equality by ensuring that women-owned businesses had a fair shot to participate in state contracts.
“The difference between Jeanne Shaheen and Scott Brown is stark: Shaheen is the kind of leader who stands up for women-owned businesses and fights for opportunities for them to succeed, but Scott Brown champions cuts to programs that offer these businesses important support,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Scott Brown’s loyalty is with the big corporate special interests groups that fund his campaigns and line his pockets, not small businesses here in New Hampshire. His record and his economic agenda is just further proof that he’s not for New Hampshire.” 

Background:

Brown Voted to Cut $224,588 From Program Supporting Women-Owned Businesses. In 2006, Brown voted to uphold “Gov. Romney’s $224,588 veto reduction (from $299,588 to $75,000) in funding for the Affirmative Market Program (AMP). Supporters of the $224,588 said that AMP promotes equality by ensuring that minority and women-owned businesses participate in and receive state contracts in many areas including construction and the delivery of goods and services.” [Sun Chronicle, 8/7/06]

AFPNH - This Is Your Chance! 

 
   
 


Senator Jeanne Shaheen proudly voted in support of ObamaCare. Don't miss your opportunity to vote against Obamacare by defeating Senator Shaheen on Novermber 4.

Thanks to Senator Shaheen and Obamacare, our network of health care providers and hospitals in New Hampshire has gotten smaller while our premiums and deductibles have gone up.

Enough is enough!

Senator Shaheen won't back down from her support of the disastrout and dangerous ObamaCare. So why should we support her?                                                               

As you know, we at Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire have spent this year educating New Hampshire citizens on the damage that Obamacare has wrought on our families and business owners.

Now it is your turn.

Senator Shaheen set the stage for our friends and neighbors to lose access to their hospitals and doctors through three decades of bad policy decisions. First by driving out the competition in the marketplace in 1994 and then voting for ObamaCare, which drove up costs. It's time for her to go - it's time to Fire Jeanne Shaheen.

Don't let Senator Shaheen get away with bringing Obamacare to New Hampshire. She is proud of her vote. Be proud of yours.

Live Free or Die,

Gregory Moore
NH State Director
