Brown For US Senate - MARCO RUBIO ENDORSES SCOTT BROWN, TAKES AIM AT THE FAILED OBAMA/SHAHEEN FOREIGN POLICY 

DERRY - Today, Scott Brown picked up the endorsement of Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio at a foreign policy discussion with local veterans. Rubio and Brown both took aim at the failed foreign policy of President Obama and Senator Shaheen, specifically the impact of the 2011 decision by Obama to precipitously withdraw from Iraq, which led to the rise of ISIS and the heightened instability in the region. 

 
"For two years, I worked closely with Scott Brown and came to trust him as a friend and public servant whose experience in the National Guard gave him unique perspectives on the national security challenges America faces in the 21st century," said Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  "I proudly support Scott Brown's campaign because New Hampshire deserves to have a principled leader in the U.S. Senate who knows what it takes to protect America and will stand up to President Obama's failed policies."
 
“Senator Shaheen has been a silent shadow for President Obama’s failed foreign policy that has weakened our country and emboldened our enemies,” said Brown. "I’m grateful to have Senator Rubio's endorsement and look forward to working with him again to restore a stronger America at home and abroad.”
 
Brown and Rubio met with over 20 veterans to listen to their concerns about President Obama's 2011 decision, supported by Jeanne Shaheen, to precipitously withdraw troops from Iraq, leading to the emergence of ISIS.  Veterans said they felt betrayed by President Obama and Jeanne Shaheen for leaving Iraq without an adequate transition force. On Sunday, the Director of the FBI confirmed on 60 Minutes that 12 American-ISIS fighters have been identified in Syria.
 
"President Obama acted to withdraw all our troops and failed to leave a sufficient number to work with the Iraqi security forces, and now the country dissolved into chaos," said Gary Lambert, a 35-year veteran of the Marine Corps, an Iraq War veteran and a Bronze Star Medal recipient.  "Jeanne Shaheen should have stood up for our troops, but blindly supported President Obama."

Brown For US Senate - U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ENDORSES SCOTT BROWN IN NASHUA 

Scott Brown is a demonstrated leader who will represent New Hampshire values above all and fight for job creation and free enterprise."
NASHUA - As part of the​ ongoing​ "Better Jobs For All" tour, Scott Brown was today endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at Rapid Sheet Metal, Inc. in Nashua.
 
​"​With today’s challenges, New Hampshire needs an independent voice and leader. They haven’t found it in Jeanne Shaheen, who voted with the Obama Administration 99% of the time​," said Rob Engstrom​, Chamber of Commerce National Political Director.  "This race represents one of the clearest choices between failed economic policies and a new vision for our country that will prioritize growth and prosperity. Scott Brown is a demonstrated leader who will represent New Hampshire values above all and fight for job creation and free enterprise. The U.S. Chamber is honored to stand with him.​"​  
 
Rapid Sheet Metal, Inc. employs 260 workers. The company makes precision metal parts for electronic products and machinery, working with many major companies across America. In addition to their​ frustrationswith​ President Obama and Senator Shaheen's failed economic policy, the company remains concerned about the rising cost of energy, recognizing that Senator Shaheen's new national energy tax will keep rates high and kill jobs.
 

"I am honored to be endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who is fighting every day for the interests of our job creators and entrepreneurs," said Brown. "As New Hampshire’s next senator, I will work tirelessly to promote pro-growth policies that will allow the private sector to grow, expand and thrive. That starts by making energy more affordable, and not imposing a new national energy tax as Senator Shaheen has attempted to do during her time in the Senate. Energy prices are already too high in New Hampshire, and if Senator Shaheen had her way, they’d be even higher, which would create uncertainty and kill jobs.”
 

Yesterday, Brown was endorsed by the National Federation for Independent Businesses (NFIB) at North Country Tractor in Pembroke, another company ​negatively impacted by Obamacare's ​upcoming ​employer mandate.  Brown has a 94% lifetime rating with the NFIB, compared to Jeanne Shaheen​'s​ disappointing 30% lifetime rating, including a 0% score for this Congress.
