SCOTT BROWN RE-EMERGES
The incumbent is getting a little nervous. An urgent fundraising message from Sen. Jeanne Shaheen notes that Scott P. Brown — yes, the former U.S. senator from Massachusetts — has crossed the border and joined up with the New Hampshire Republican party for his seventh fundraiser in the Granite State this year. This is making the New Hampshire Democrat a little uncomfortable.
That reveals a lot about his future plans,” the message from hubby Bill Shaheen explains.
“Karl Rove’s been talking up a Brown run for months, hailing him as a ‘ninth-generation Granite Stater.’ With Rove trumpeting his cause, Brown would have access to millions in support from secret, shadowy super PACs. They’re desperate to take control of the Senate and turn it into the House.”
The Midwest calls, meanwhile. Mr. Brown also will headline the Ronald Reagan Dinner in Bettendorf, Iowa, this following an August appearance at the Iowa State Fair. He is, according to the Boston Herald, “playin spinthe-bottle” with the GOP.
