NHDP - HuffPo: Jeanne Shaheen's New Ad: Scott Brown Not For New Hampshire And 'Never Will Be' 

Huffington Post: Jeanne Shaheen's New Ad: Scott Brown Not For New Hampshire
And 'Never Will Be'


By Sabrina Siddiqui

WATCH THE AD HERE

 
With the New Hampshire Senate race shaping up to be unexpectedly close, due in part to national issues like the Islamic State and the Ebola outbreak, Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is looking to place the spotlight back on jobs and outsourcing.

The Shaheen campaign released a new paid web ad Wednesday, shared first with The Huffington Post, that ties Brown to two New Hampshire residents whose jobs were shipped overseas. The couple, Ed and Ginger Cunningham, discuss working for Lucent Technologies until the plant, in North Andover, Massachusetts, was closed down and jobs were outsourced.

"There were 8,000 people who worked at Lucent, and one out of four of them were New Hampshire residents," Ed Cunningham says in the video, referring to the many people in the Granite State who commute to Massachusetts for work.

The ad notes that Brown voted to give tax breaks to companies that outsourced American jobs. Ed Cunningham adds that Brown "took our tax dollars and used them to ship our jobs overseas."

"It was devastating to see it happening, watching the people leave little by little, just seeing the jobs go away, wondering what everybody was going to do," Ginger Cunningham adds.

Brown has said he never voted to ship jobs overseas, but Shaheen has accused him of having multiple ties to outsourcing. In August, Shaheen's campaign called on Brown to resign from the board of directors of Kadant, Inc., a Massachusetts-based company that has outsourced jobs to China and Mexico.

The ad also makes a reference to Kadant but is mostly designed to portray Brown, a former senator from Massachusetts, as lacking commitment to the people of New Hampshire. Brown, who moved to New Hampshire late last year, has struggled to combat the perception that he is a carpetbagger, and remains unpopular in the Granite State.

He has nonetheless managed to narrow the gap with Shaheen to just 2 percentage points, according to HuffPost's average of all publicly available polling.

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - My new ad  

Friend,

Here's a special first look at my new ad that goes up on TV tomorrow.

Congresswoman Shea-Porter's failed leadership in Congress has led her to run a smear campaign riddled with false attacks on my record.

The Congresswoman's false attack ads are just another desperate attempt by Shea-Porter to distract Granite Staters from her record of voting to give members of Congress first class travel, health care for life, and exempting herself from ObamaCare.

I'm focused on providing real, bipartisan solutions that balance our budgets, get our economy moving again, and put people first. Granite Staters deserve an independent voice for New Hampshire values.

Please take a look at my new ad HERE.

Thank you,

Frank

Brown For US Senate - BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW TV AD: "ZERO" 


BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW TV AD: "ZERO"

 
 
MANCHESTER Today, the Brown campaign released a new TV ad titled: “Zero” highlighting Jeanne Shaheen’s zero percent rating from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) this Congress.  The NFIB is one of the nation’s leading voices for small business, and has given Brown a lifetime 94% rating for his pro-growth policies and positions.
 
Brown was endorsed by the NFIB at North Country Tractor in Pembroke as part of the “Better Jobs For All” tour, citing his positions to repeal Obamacare and ​lower energy prices.  Recently, the Portsmouth Herald reported that rising energy ​costs will pose a "dire situation" this winter​​​ in New Hampshire.  Senator Shaheen voted to pave the way for a national energy tax set to increase electricity prices up to 18%.
 
Echoing the NFIB’s support, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsed Brown and
said the matchup between Brown and Shaheen, “represents one of the clearest choices between failed economic policies and a new vision for our country that will prioritize growth and prosperity.”
