NHDP - In Case You Missed It: Four Polls In Four Days Show Shaheen With Steady Lead 

Manchester, NH--In case you missed it, four polls released since Monday have shown Jeanne Shaheen with a steady lead over Scott Brown. In all the polling, Scott Brown was viewed negatively compared to Shaheen, further proving that voters here in New Hampshire don’t trust him and are still questioning his motives to move here from Massachusetts.

On Tuesday, the crowd at the NECN debate in Concord laughed at Brown when he tried to explain his reasoning for moving to New Hampshire after losing his race in Massachusetts.  The crowd also laughed at Brown when he falsely claimed he never voted to outsource jobs.

To date, Scott Brown and his Wall Street, Big Oil have spent more than $12 million against Senator Shaheen.


Suffolk: Shaheen leads 49-46. Brown’s favorability in the survey is negative 9, while Shaheen’s is plus 7. 

UMass/WBZ: Shaheen leads 48-45. Brown’s favorability is negative 13, Shaheen’s is plus 6.

PPP: Shaheen leads 49-45. Brown’s favorability is negative 4, Shaheen’s is plus 5.

CNN: Shaheen leads 49-47. Brown’s favorability is negative 2, Shaheen’s is plus 7.

NHDP - New NHDP Web Video: “The Scott Brown Show” 

New NHDP Web Video: “The Scott Brown Show”
 
Manchester - Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party released a new web video titled, “The Scott Brown Show,” which highlights how Scott Brown's laughable rhetoric on important issues is entirely removed from the realities of his record. At Tuesday's debate, the crowd in Concord repeatedly laughed at Brown when he tried to run away from his vote to protect tax breaks for companies that outsource or when he tried to explain away his motives behind running for office in New Hampshire fresh off of a loss in Massachusetts. 
 
To watch the video here.
 
“Scott Brown's phony excuses and empty rhetoric is laughable, but his record is definitely not," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. "His record on protecting tax breaks for companies that outsource and Big Oil special interests is just more proof that he is wrong for New Hampshire and people here can't trust him.”

The video begins by highlighting a moment from Tuesday’s NECN debate when Scott Brown was asked by NBC’s Chuck Todd why he decided to move to New Hampshire to run for office instead of running again in Massachusetts. It goes on to show the crowd at the debate again laughed when he attempted to run from his pro-outsorucing voting record.
 
“Come November, New Hampshire voters will see a clear choice between someone who has actually been here for New Hampshire and someone who is in this race for nobody but himself and the corporate interests that line his pockets and campaign coffers,” added McClain.
 
The video also features Brown’s botched answer to a question on border security, and his infamous claim that he has “secret meetings with kings and queens.” It ends with dueling clips of Brown peddling the exact same line that he will be “nobody’s Senator but yours” in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Brown For US Senate - SHAHEEN’S POSITIONS AS INCONSISTENT & CONFUSING AS OBAMA’S 

CONCORD - Following tonight's NH1/CNN U.S. Senatedebate in Concord, Colin Reed, campaign manager for Scott Brown, issued the following statement:

 
"Tonight you heard Jeanne Shaheen dismiss the threat of ISIS, back track on the Ebola travel ban and change her position on military options related to critical foreign policy decisions. Her positions were as inconsistent and confusing as President Obama’s, and the people of New Hampshire are ready for new leadership.  Over the past six years, Jeanne Shaheen broke her promise to be an independent voice and has rubberstamped the President's failed policies, now she is struggling to defend her record to Granite Staters at home.  Scott Brown explained his vision to secure the border, strengthen the economy and restore a stronger America.  He is bringing clear solutions to the table to strengthen our national security and economic security at home and abroad."

Senator Brown:  Still hasn’t answered your question she didn’t answer it in the last debate as well and that’s part of the problem she is so tied in with President Obama and his failed policies on this issue.  The question was would you agree with the President to send ground troops or not.  The bottom line is you’ve already taken it off the table.  You’ve taken the greatest fighting force off the table and we have an opportunity.  There is no one talking by the way about occupying forces we are talking about a transitional force as we have done in other countries.  They are not occupiers, we were there to assist the government, the Iraqi Government,  to make sure what happened wouldn’t happen and its that type of lack of leadership
 
Senator Shaheen: Well we are there assisting the Iraqi Government
 
Senator Brown: Where are allies don’t trust us right now
 
Senator Shaheen: And we are assisting the Kurds
 
Senator Brown: Senator with respect the Kurds are hanging on for dear life.  They’re in trouble.  The Iraqi government is in trouble.  ISIS is the size of New England right now and you and the President have taken ground troops off the table, which is the worst thing you can do when you have the greatest fighting force in the world.  You take them off the table and that is part of the problem you’re so, you’re so supportive of this President you can’t even say if General Dempsey and others say we need ground troops, you won’t even say right now that yes we have to do it.  Their goal is to put a flag in the White House, our goal is to make sure that doesn’t happen and right now because of the if you don’t believe me Secretary Panetta said he advocated for it and the President rejected each and every opportunity to make sure we could have a transition force there.  It was a mistake but not for that effort we would not be in this.
