Eyes On Brown In N.H., Control Of Senate
A lot of attention this election season will be on New Hampshire as Scott Brown appears likely to run for a Senate seat in the granite state. But there’s more interest than the possible comeback of a former Massachusetts Republican Senator.
If Scott Brown runs and defeats Democratic incumbent Jean Shaheen, the GOP could take control over the Senate. That would mean both houses would be Republican-controlled, under a Democratic president.
Noah Bierman, Boston Globe political reporter.
Boston Globe “Prognosticators are now putting GOP odds of winning control of the Senate at 50-50 or better, a marked improvement from just a few weeks ago.”
WBUR “Brown moved to New Hampshire and has been traveling the state for the past year. … He told a gathering of Republicans in Nashua that his wife, Gail Huff, has been urging him to run again.”
WBUR “Democrats and their allies are already preparing for a worst-case scenario, having spent roughly $360,000 combined on television advertising against Brown in recent weeks.”
