Brown For US Senate - SCOTT BROWN ON EBOLA: THIS IS NOT A TIME FOR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS 

MANCHESTER Today, Scott Brown released the following statement on Ebola:

 
“Ebola has now spread to New York City, the largest city in the United States and less than 300 miles from New Hampshire. The person who brought it there passed through enhanced screening at the airport and exposed himself to countless other people by riding the subway, taking a taxi and going bowling. Still, Senator Shaheen is waffling on a travel ban. The way to stop mass infection is by swift and decisive action, including a travel ban and quarantining health workers returning from countries where Ebola is prevalent. This is not a time for political correctness; it’s a time for common-sense prevention mechanisms.”

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.

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."
