Brown For US Senate - PRIMARY OVER, SCOTT BROWN RELEASES NEW TV AD: "INDEPENDENT"

 
PRIMARY OVER, SCOTT BROWN RELEASES NEW TV AD: "INDEPENDENT"

MANCHESTER - On the heels of Tuesday's successful primary, Scott Brown released a new TV ad titled “Independent,” the first of the general election phase of the campaign. The 30-second spot frames the race as a contest between Jeanne Shaheen, an Obama rubber stamp, and Scott Brown, a truly independent voice for New Hampshire.
 
Set at iconic MaryAnn's Diner in Derry, the ad opens with Brown sitting at the counter talking to the camera about why he's running: "I want a strong America with good jobs you can count on and a foreign policy that once again leads the world."
 
Brown then explains what it means for New Hampshire citizens that Shaheen votes with Obama 99% of the time: "Fewer jobs, higher taxes and debt, a health care law that doesn't work and an unstable world."
 
The ad closes with Brown's promise that he'll be "an independent senator that votes for New Hampshire first."

Watch the ad.

"Independent" Transcript:
 
Scott Brown: Over the next several weeks, you're going to hear a lot about the race for U.S. Senate
 
So, let me tell you why I'm running
 
I want a strong America with good jobs you can count on
 
And a foreign policy that once again leads the world
 
My opponent Jeanne Shaheen votes with President Obama 99% of the time
 
What does that mean for you?
 
Fewer jobs, higher taxes and debt, a health care law that doesn't work and an unstable world
 
I'm Scott Brown
 
I approve this message
 
And I'll be an independent senator that votes for New Hampshire first

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Veterans Speak Out Against Gary Lambert’s Dishonest Campaign Ad

 

"/

Concord, NH (9/3/14) – Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement regarding the release of the below video of veterans calling on Gary Lambert to remove his dishonest negative attack ads:

“The people of New Hampshire have no tolerance for dishonest and deceitful attack ads that push the boundaries of acceptable conduct. The fact that so many honorable and distinguished veterans came forward and voluntarily voiced their concerns with Gary Lambert’s recent attacks should be evidence that this behavior is completely unacceptable and dishonorable,” said Cunningham.

Cunningham went on to say “the contrast in the race is stark; Marilinda Garcia is a new generation conservative who has run a positive race focused on bottom-up solutions to our nation’s problems while Gary Lambert’s negative attacks have earned him a ‘pants on fire’ rating from the fact checkers and have now drawn the ire of fellow veterans.  This campaign should be about who is the best candidate to beat Ann Kuster.  We encourage Gary Lamber to listen to his fellow veterans and Chairman Jennifer Horn who have called for a clean race without dishonest, negative TV ads.”

Lambert For Congress (CD2) - Lambert Releases New TV Ad: “Differences”

Nashua – Today, United States Marine Corps Colonel (Ret.) and 2nd District Congressional candidate Gary Lambert released a new campaign ad entitled “Differences”. The ad will begin airing Thursday. Lambert also released the following statement:

 

“My experience as a small business owner makes it clear to me that Obamacare must be repealed. It is increasing costs on working families, preventing businesses from creating jobs, and putting government between doctors and patients. My opponent, Representative Garcia told an editorial board recently that she opposes repeal because it’s not a ‘viable option.’ I disagree – I think repealing Obamacare is imperative to job growth.

 

If you send me to Congress, I will not stop fighting until Obamacare is repealed. I’ve fought all my life – to put myself through college and law school, to start a business, for our country in Iraq – and I’ve haven’t given up on anything yet. I’ll bring the same fight to repealing Obamacare in Congress.”

 

“Differences”

 

Background: 

Excerpt from Garcia interview with Keene Sentinel published on August 20th, 2014: 

“She said she would advocate dismantling most aspects of the Affordable Care Act, but that repealing the law would no longer be a viable option. She said she sees the country’s health care debate as a struggle between trust in the free market and government intervention.

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Garcia Campaign Calls for Media to Remove Gary Lambert’s Dishonest Ads

"/

 

Concord, NH - The Marilinda Garcia for Congress campaign sent a letter to New Hampshire media today calling for the most recent Lambert for Congress television ad to be pulled off the air.  The ad intentionally misrepresents Marilinda’s record by misusing information that clearly demonstrates Marilinda opposes ObamaCare and would work to dismantle the law if elected to Congress.

Eric Wang, legal counsel to Garcia for Congress, sent the letter today to request New Hampshire television stations cease and desist from further airing this ad. The full letter from the Garcia campaign can be found by clicking here.

“Gary Lambert has resorted to self-funding a smear campaign against Marilinda Garcia and it needs to stop now,” said campaign manager Tom Szold. 

“Like Obama, Gary has received a 'pants on fire' rating from the fact checkers for his dishonest attack ads because he will say anything to win. Marilinda has always opposed Obamacare, and will work to repeal it in Washington. Unlike Marilinda, Gary Lambert actually has a number of votes that he must explain to New Hampshire voters, including all three votes he made in support of Obama's cap and trade scheme, his vote against allowing consumers to buy affordable health insurance across state lines, and his vote to support federal education regulations like Common Core,” continued Szold.

Brown For US Senate - BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW RADIO AD: "KELLY" 

"He's independent, he cares about people and he's a good listener"


MANCHESTER - Today, the Brown campaign released a new radio ad featuring U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte that complements the endorsement ad which is currently running on TV. The radio adds a reference to the challenges Brown has faced in his own life and how that connects him to people who struggle to pay the bills or save for college, and praises Brown as a "good listener" who "cares about people."
 
"Growing up, Scott didn't have it easy. He had to struggle for everything he's got, just like you struggle to pay the bills or save for college," Ayotte says in the 60-second ad. The spot goes on to say, "He's independent, he cares about people and he's a good listener."
 
The ad concludes: "I need Scott Brown in the Senate so we can make progress together. Scott Brown will work with me to put you back in charge of your life, create strong communities with more jobs and a better future for all of us."
