NH GOP - EVEN ELIZABETH WARREN SHOWS MORE INDEPENDENCE FROM OBAMA THAN SHAHEEN 

Concord- Today, New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Elizabeth Warren campaigning for Senator Shaheen:

 

"Elizabeth Warren's presence in New Hampshire highlights just how out-of-touch Jeanne Shaheen is with the people of her state," said Jennifer Horn. "Although Warren is one of the Senate's most avowed liberals, even she votes less often for President Obama's agenda than Senator Shaheen. She has earned this dubious honor by loyally and blindly rubberstamping the President's agenda for the last six years, breaking her word to be an independent senator for New Hampshire. The Obama policies are the Shaheen policies. Scott Brown's running to replace Shaheen's blank check for Obama with a true check and balance, and give New Hampshire that independent representation it deserves and that Senator Shaheen has failed to deliver."

NRSC - Shaheen Voted with Obama 98% of the time in '14

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS RIGHT!!
His Policies are on the Ballot 

Jeanne Shaheen Voted with President Obama 
98% of the time in 2014

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) has desperately tried to distance herself from Barack Obama, a president whom she voted with 99 percent of the time in 2013.

Unfortunately for Senator Shaheen, a new report by Congressional Quarterly/Roll Call shows that Jeanne Shaheen voted with Obama 98 percent of the time in 2014, even though a clear majority of Granite Staters voters disapprove of him. Turns out President Obama was right, his policies are on the ballot. 

"Jeanne Shaheen is no independent; this year she actually voted for President Obama's agenda an astounding 98% of the time," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "President Obama is right, a vote for Jeanne Shaheen is a vote for his policies."
