NHDP - NEW WEB AD: Brown and Romney Outsourcing Records Wrong For NH

NHDP Releases New Targeted Web Ad Ahead of Romney Visit
 
Manchester, NH--The New Hampshire Democratic Party is releasing a new web ad ahead of Scott Brown's campaign stop with fellow Massachusetts politician and notorious outsourcer, Mitt Romney. During Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, it was revealed that Mitt Romney invested millions of dollars in a company that profited off of U.S. Outsourcing. Similarly, Scott Brown has been making hundreds of thousands of dollars off an outsourcing company, even endorsing their business strategy, which included sending jobs to China and Mexico.

"Scott Brown and Mitt Romney both cashed in off of outsourcing jobs--and that's just further proof that both are wrong for our economy and wrong for New Hampshire," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain.

Brown For US Senate - SCOTT BROWN & GOVERNOR ROMNEY RALLY AT GILCHRIST METAL FABRICATING

SCOTT BROWN & GOVERNOR ROMNEY RALLY AT GILCHRIST METAL FABRICATING, DISCUSS HIGH ENERGY PRICES

 
 
HUDSON Today, Governor Mitt Romney rallied with Scott Brown at Gilchrist Metal Fabricating. The pair addressed the need to lower energy costs and increase supply to boost New Hampshire's economy and eliminate the burdens of the Obama-Shaheen failed economic policies.  
 
"New Hampshire's energy costs are through the roof and Senator Shaheen wants to make them even higher by voting to pave the way for a new national energy tax," said Brown  “She has consistently voted against small business and has received an incredible zero rating from the National Federation of Independent Businesses.  I'm running to put New Hampshire first and I'm glad to have Governor Romney here today.  Our nation would be a lot better off with him in the White House."
"Scott Brown knows what it takes to keep the economy growing, while Jeanne Shaheen has voted to open the door for a national energy tax and supports President Obama 99 percent of the time," said Romney. "We need an independent senator who will fight for New Hampshire and that person is Scott Brown."
 
Gilchrist Metal Fabricating, with 35 employees, manufactures metal products for 29 service industry companies and cites energy bills are the second most expensive cost for their business. Recent reports state energy prices will increase by up to 50 percent in New Hampshire this winter.
 
In 2013, Senator Shaheen voted to pave the way for a new national energy tax. According to a study from the non-partisan National Association of Manufacturers, gas prices would increase by 20 cents per gallon and home heating costs would rise by $650 annually.  Shaheen has a 0% rating this Congress from the National Federation of Independent Business, compared to Brown's nearly perfect lifetime record of 94%.
 
"We appreciate Scott Brown and Governor Romney joining us today to focus on reviving our economy," said Jack Gilchrist, owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating. "Scott has been a champion for small businesses and will support meaningful reforms to lower energy costs, repeal Obamacare and eliminate the uncertainties of the Obama-Shaheen economy.  He has my vote, and we trust him to be the independent voice that will put New Hampshire first."

NHDP - Mass and NH Labor Leaders Speak Out On Brown’s Outsourcing Record 

As Outsourcing Champion Mitt Romney Campaigns With Scott Brown, Massachusetts and New Hampshire Labor Leaders Speak Out on Brown’s Outsourcing Record
 

Manchester, NH – Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman and New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Mark Mackenzie spoke out against Scott Brown’s outsourcing record today as he campaigned alongside outsourcing champion Mitt Romney. Like Romney, Scott Brown has a record of profiting off companies that ship American jobs overseas. In the Senate, Brown voted to protect tax breaks for companies that shipped jobs overseas.
 
“New Hampshire shouldn’t make the same mistake Massachusetts made, because Scott Brown’s record when he went to Washington proves that he’s not for working families. He’s a guy that works to protect his corporate special interest backers, at the cost of the middle class,” said Steven Tolman, President of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “Now we know that since losing in Massachusetts, Brown has been making hundreds of thousands of dollars off of a company that made outsourcing part of its business plan. That company, Kadant Inc., even outsourced jobs in Massachusetts, the same state he once served. Scott Brown was wrong for Massachusetts and he’s wrong for New Hampshire.”
 
“Outsourcing is the type of business practice that lines the pockets of people like Scott Brown and Mitt Romney, but is devastating for communities in a state like New Hampshire,” said Mark Mackenzie, President of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO. “When jobs are shipped overseas, families suffer, unemployment rates increase, and entire communities are decimated. The fact that Scott Brown personally profited from this practice is shameful. We can't trust him and most definitely can't afford to send his agenda back to the Senate.”


As a Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown voted to protect special tax breaks for companies that offshore American jobs. After leaving the Senate, he made more than a quarter million dollars by serving on the Board of Directors of Kadant, Inc., a company that outsourced American jobs to increase its bottom line. Just two days before he announced his most recent campaign in New Hampshire, Brown signed legal documents endorsing the company’s business strategy, which included establishing cheaper manufacturing facilities in China and Mexico.

Brown For US Senate - MITT ROMNEY: "WASHINGTON IS NOT A PLACE WHERE NH WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF SIMON SAYS" 



MITT ROMNEY: "WASHINGTON IS NOT A PLACE WHERE NEW HAMPSHIRE WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF SIMON SAYS"

 

MANCHESTER Today, the Brown campaign released a web video titled "Simon Says" that features Mitt Romney discussing Jeanne Shaheen’s 99 percent voting record with President Obama.
 
Shot at the iconic Scamman Farm in Stratham, the 30-second spot shows Romney calling Shaheen "the Simon Says senator." Since taking office 6 years ago, Shaheen broke her promise to be an independent voice for New Hampshire and has turned into one of Obama’s most loyal supporters.
 
Standing before a crowded field of supporters, Romney points out that November’s mid-term election represents the last chance for the people of New Hampshire to pass judgment on the Obama Administration. Says Romney: the “people of New Hampshire have a chance to vote on what they think about the President’s agenda.”
 
He goes on to endorse Scott Brown based on his proven record as an "independent voice," who will vote for the people of New Hampshire to restore a stronger America for our families.
