In a new ad, New Hampshire Republican Senate nominee Scott Brown ties border security, the threat from ISIS and that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and President Obama are confused about the threat from Islamist militants. The campaign wouldn’t provide details on the exact size of the buy, a campaign spokeswoman told Fox News First that the spots would air on WMUR, WBIN, cable outlets and Boston stations.
Hard words – Here’s the script from Brown, speaking directly to camera and interspersed with images of ISIS fighters and other scary scenes:
“Anyone who turns on the TV these days know we faces challenges to our way of life. Radical Islamic terrorists are threatening to cause the collapse of our country. President Obama and Senator Shaheen seem confused about the nature of the threat – not me. I want to secure the border; keep out the people who would do us harm and restore America’s leadership in the world. I’m Scott Brown and I approve this message. Because protecting the homeland is the first step in making America strong again.”
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has agreed to appear at four of the seven debate offers Brown has accepted. Complicating matters for Shaheen is that Democrat Gov. Maggie Hassan has accepted seven debates with Republican challenger Walt Havenstein.]
Risk or reward – Brown has gained greatly in the polls on the issues of border security and foreign policy. New Hampshire is a hawkish state to be sure. But, with the spot coming just as Obama escalates the war with ISIS into Syria, will the message sound like Brown is not rallying to the commander in chief? Part of the calculation here may be that Shaheen has struggled with the issue and may not want to call attention to her support for
or disagreement with the president’s policies.
Patriots if you want another obama then vote ShaHeen, if your tired of obama in NH, VOTE Scott!
