Scott Brown, not for New Hampshire

Share This

Scott Brown is hoping that we forget his past. But his record as a senator from Massachusetts is something that we all won't—shouldn't—forget.

That's why the AFT launched a new TV ad about Brown's record.

Our Senate race in New Hampshire is one of the most hotly contested races in the country. It's all going to come down to who turns out on Election Day. We have to make sure our family, friends and neighbors understand why Brown's record matters, and—even more important—why they can't skip the polls on Election Day.

"Scott Brown's record is deplorable for kids, families and communities," says AFT President Randi Weingarten. "I spent a day last weekend talking with New Hampshire voters about Jeanne Shaheen. These voters want a U.S. senator who will fight for them and their livelihoods, not for wealthy corporations. Brown wasn't that senator when he was a senator in Massachusetts. Shaheen has been, and is now, that senator for New Hampshire."

"We want a senator who will stand up for kids and families," says AFT-NH President Laura Hainey. "But Scott Brown—judging from his record as senator in Massachusetts—will put corporations over communities. That's why voters in New Hampshire are excited to re-elect Jeanne Shaheen. We know she'll stand up for us, not just the wealthy few."

With the economy the way it is, we shouldn't be rewarding companies that send jobs overseas. But Brown has voted to give tax breaks to companies that export jobs.

He's also voted for tax breaks for big oil companies while we're stuck paying higher energy costs. By supporting tax breaks for major corporations, he's shown that he doesn't stand with the people of New Hampshire.

Scott Brown cares about Scott Brown, not New Hampshire.
