Seat in Danger

Shaheen better start debate prep now:

“Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever. But I have long and strong ties to this state,”
— Former Sen. Scott Brown (R), quoted by the AP, on his New Hampshire U.S. Senate race.

Brown also won’t take a position on Medicaid expansion in his new home state.

    Shaheen is still going to curb stomp this clown but it’s going to drain money from other races, that’s the real point of him jumping in.

    Most of the responses I’ve heard are unprintable.

    He’s a carpet bagger and Shaheen was a popular governor before she became a popular senator. I hope his running drives more democrats to the polls in a mid term year so we don’t turn the state house back over to the party of crazy.

    He is dumb as a bag of rocks but he will get a ton of money for this race so we will all have to scramble to deal with him. The amount of banking money that flooded his campaign in 2010 was just astounding. They got what they paid for though as he did manage to water down Dodd Frank quite a bit once elected.

    I know that the linked article says the following:

    Brown spent the first year and a half of his life living in New Hampshire before his family moved to Massachusetts. […] Brown became a New Hampshire registered voter 13 weeks ago, according to the Rye, N.H., town clerk. He and his wife moved to their 1,700-square foot seacoast New Hampshire vacation home in late December.

    This is all true. What it does not say is that Brown and his wife have owned (and used) that seacoast vacation home (in Rye) for more than two decades. (It also does not tell you how many other properties they own.)

    I have yet to speak to someone with a better reason to vote for him. Ah, I remember the good-ole-days of Brown’s first run. When Obama’s national security problem was wanting to provide oversight and stop the worst abuses. I wonder if Brown has flipped the script yet.

    NotMax says:

    @Cervantes

    All the worse, if after that much time he cannot bring himself to speak the state’s name (or cannot remember it).

    Shall refrain from doing more than giddily metnioning that the sandy stretches of Rye waterfront were created from the publicly financed construction and maintenance of groins.

    @MomSense: But it cuts both ways. If he attracts tons of money to the campaign and still loses thats money that didn’t go into other campaigns on their side, as well as ours. I actually don’t have a problem with Shaheen having to fight for this seat–I think it energizes the voters and we can’t afford to take any seats for granted, anyway.

    So basically, Scott Brown was elected in Massachusetts based on looks and a pickup truck. I really have to laugh anytime anyone legitimately thinks he has a chance. One 2 year stint in the Senate only to be beaten by a political newbie who has since far eclipsed Brown.

    Not exactly. His main opponent, Martha Coakley, was an awful candidate.

    NotMax says:

    @Cervantes

    Yes, yes, she was.

    Currently it seems she’s on track for becoming governor, so hope she has learned something lasting from the Senate race debacle.

  41. 41
    Cervantes says:

    @NotMax: Of the five candidates on the Democratic side, I know four pretty well. Coakley is not my favorite. She’s doing well in opinion polls but she’s not popular among party activists. The primary is in September.

    Davis X. Machina says:

    @Cervantes: Brown had a ton of free media — in a sports-mad town having the then-#1 morning sports-talk show give over entire days to the Senate race. The bro vote was significant. Two of my brothers from exurban Boston — far interior Cape Ann, and the swamps of Plymouth-Carver-Kingston — both union members, both life-long Democrat, voted for Brown…

    @Cervantes: By that standard, the Bush Crime family should be able to run for office in Maine like they’re as Down East as the next guy, and all those Villagers who own vacation homes on Martha’s Vinyard and Nantucket are authentic Massholes.

    I have very little faith in anything, but I do believe in Democrats’ talent for screwing things up.
