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.
