More Than 50 Former Elected Officials And Grassroots Activists Backing Brown

MANCHESTER - Scott Brown's grassroots team continues to grow, as the campaign rolled out its latest list of supporters in Cheshire and Sullivan counties. The list has more than 50 names including Cheshire County co-chairs Tom Eaton, the former President of the New Hampshire Senate, and Jane Lane, the former President of the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women.

The Sullivan County co-chairs are former State Representative Tony Maiola and his wife, Betty.     “These leaders will be instrumental as we continue to spread our positive message across New Hampshire and I am grateful for their support," said Brown. "New Hampshire needs a senator who will secure our border and turn off the magnets that are drawing illegal immigrants to our country, and that will be one of my priorities when I get to Washington."

Rubens For US Senate - Rubens Campaign Rolls Out Veterans Steering Committee 

As part of its ongoing effort to reach out and speak up on veterans' issues, the Jim Rubens for U.S. Senate campaign unveiled the members of its Veterans Steering Committee today.


While veterans issues have been an important part of the U.S. Senate campaign,  Rubens was the only Senate candidate to speak at the Disabled American Veterans convention in Gorham, the only Senate candidate to speak to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Bartlett and was the first Senate candidate to call for a voucher program veterans who were stuck on the VA waitlist.

KEENE Today, former New Hampshire Congressman Charlie Bass (R-Peterborough) endorsed Scott Brown, adding to the growing list of supporters backing Brown's bid for the U.S. Senate. 
"It is time for new leadership, it is time to elect a Senator who will bring courage and independent leadership to Washington, a senator who will partner with Kelly Ayotte and her record of cutting wasteful spending, keeping our Nation strong and secure, and not a Senator whose record has been little more than a rubber stamp for this failed Administration,” said Bass.
“I am supporting Senator Scott Brown because he is the only candidate that has the ideas, the experience, the record, and the ability to win in November. Scott Brown is the person our Party needs now, and we must unify around him today,” Bass concluded.

"I’m grateful to have the support of Congressman Bass, who has been fighting for small government in our state for almost three decades," Brown said. "Charlie joins the growing list of Republicans supporting my campaign who want a change in direction in Washington. Republicans of all stripes know that if we stand together we can defeat Senator Shaheen in November and put our country back on the right path.”

Congressman Bass served seven terms in Washington representing New Hampshire's Second Congressional District, and also served in the New Hampshire General Court and State Senate. 



MANCHESTER This evening, Scott Brown hosted the “Veterans for Brown” coalition kick-off event at campaign headquarters.  The coalition is being co-chaired by retired Marine Corps Sergeant Major Paul Chevalier, retired Air Force Reserve Colonel Theresa Negron, and retired Navy Lieutenant Bill Grimm.
“Scott Brown understands the challenges faced by servicemembers and their families.  As our senator, I know he will work hard to make sure they are supported long after they’ve answered the call to serve,” said Chevalier.
“Washington is broken, and it is deeply troubling that our veterans and their families are paying the price for the dysfunction and red tape that constantly gets in the way.  Scott Brown has served our country and will fight to make a difference for us; we need his leadership in the Senate,” said Negron.
“Scott will work across the aisle to deliver results for the veterans community.  I’m pleased to see Scott has outlined commonsense ideas to get more veterans back to work and place a check and balance on Washington—ensuring we have access to the health care and services we need,” said Grimm.
Earlier today, the Brown campaign released a list of over 
200 veterans committed to supporting Brown’s candidacy, representing all five military branches.
“We need to put our veterans first and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect,” said Brown, a 35-year member of the Army National Guard.  “I am deeply humbled to be supported by so many brave men and women who served our country and are ready for change in Washington.” 
Since last week, Brown has been criss-crossing the state on the “Honoring Our Veterans” tour to meet with veterans and tour facilities.  Brown released a detailed policy sheet outlining ways to improve VA accountability, improve employment opportunities and streamline access to health care.  As senator, Brown authored the Hire A Hero Act to provide tax credits for businesses that hire veterans.
