Brown For US Senate - AROUND TOWN WITH SCOTT BROWN - THIS WEEK: "MAKING THE CASE" 

"Making The Case"
Happy Friday,

With under two weeks to go until Election Day, Scott faced off in two debates with Senator Shaheen this week, making the case that New Hampshire needs an independent voice in the U.S. Senate, not a rubber stamp for President Obama's failed policies.

Scott also took to the trail this week to talk high energy costs and his plan to lower prices. Already, New Hampshire energy companies have increased rates for this winter, and things would only get worse under Senator Shaheen's proposed national energy tax.  

Energy is at an all time high and with your help, we are going to make Scott Brown our next Senator. Please take a look at our bulletin board below and find out what you can do to help us win this election and send Scott to Washington so he can fight for New Hampshire.

Brown Wins Debate: "The Issues Were On His Side"

In the first televised debate on Tuesday, WHDH's Andy Hiller declared Scott Brown the winner, saying "the issues were on his side." 

Over the course of the debate, Scott emphasized Senator Shaheen's continued support of President Obama and also explained to moderator Chuck Todd that the metric for a secure border is when "no one can come across it." 
Jeanne Shaheen's Performance Widely Panned

Scott also had a great second debate, giving a number of strong answers, especially when discussing ISIS and the poor decision of Senator Shaheen and President Obama to take options off the table.

But the story of the second debate was Senator Shaheen and her losing performance. NH1's Kevin Landrigan said she looked, "irritated," and "frustrated," while Breitbart's  Matthew Boyle wrote that, "Shaheen’s performance during the debate was arguably one of the worst by an incumbent Democrat this year. " 
"National Energy Tax" & "Zero"

Our campaign also released two new television ads this week to inform voters about how Jeanne Shaheen's policies are affecting them.

"National Energy Tax," highlights Shaheen's support for a new tax on energy while "Zero," discusses the Senator's zero rating from the National Federation of Independent Business, indicating that her policies have crushed small businesses.

Scott Brown On Ebola: This Is Not A Time For Political Correctness

Ebola was a hot topic during the debates this week and Scott continued to provide strong leadership on the issue, while Senator Shaheen kept waffling.

We learned last night that Ebola has now spread to New York City. Scott released a statement indicating that the way we can stop this mass infection is by swift and decisive action, including a travel ban and quarantining health workers returning from countries were Ebola is prevalent.

Meanwhile, Jeanne Shaheen has been on both sides of the issue, and last night, seemed to indicate that she did not support a travel ban.
"Soaring Electric Rates"

With energy prices set to dramatically increase, our campaign is out with a new web video that shows Jeanne Shaheen's broken promise to reduce energy costs. Please watch the video and share it with your friends so they know why we can't trust Jeanne Shaheen when it comes to energy. 
On The Trail...

Even with two debates in three days, Scott still managed to meet with Granite Staters and talk with them about how he will work for them, and all of New Hampshire, when he is in the United States Senate. He discussed his vision for a better New Hampshire at the Portsmouth Rotary Club, visited Wire Belt Company of America in Londonderry to hear about how high energy costs are affecting them, stopped by the Bi-State Primary Care Association forum to talk health care and grabbed some seafood at Brown's Lobster Pound in Seabrook.

Citizens For A Strong NH - E-Newsletter: Employer Mandate, protests, and more... 

 

Heavy Online Ad Buy: Discussing Jeanne Shaheen and the employer mandate

 

As reported in the NHJournal on Wednesday, we launched a heavy, statewide, online advertisement buy this week, focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen and the negative effects of Obamacare's employer mandate. 

Last year, the Obama Administration announced it would delay the employer mandate portion of Obamacare until 2015. That decision was made shortly after we released our first television spot on Jeanne Shaheen titled, "What to Cut," back in June of 2013.

 

As we approach 2015, the Obama Administration still plans to move forward with enacting the mandate, and Shaheen has been silent on the issue. She has not asked for the delay to be extended or for a full repeal of the employer mandate.

 

The advertisements will alternate between the organization's new spot titled, "Extra Time," and the spot from last year titled, "What to Cut."

Read more in our full media release by clicking HERE.

 

 
 

Protests: Holding our elected officials accountable

Throughout the week, our volunteers have been busy holding Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and Congresswoman Annie Kuster accountable for hiding from their constituents at protests around the state.

 

Over the past couple of years, the four aforementioned elected officials have made it a point to avoid public town hall meetings, or other forums, where average Granite Staters could discuss the important issues facing our state and country.  

 

If you are interested in joining them for other visibility events next week, please email Mike@StrongNH.com for more information.

          

 

 
 

No response: Governor Maggie Hassan won't say whether she still supports President Obama

On Friday, we caught up with Governor Maggie Hassan.

While Governor Hassan has been a strong supporter of President Obama's liberal policies, when asked, she would not answer whether she voted for President Obama or whether she still supports his failed agenda.
