THROUGHOUT MY time in public service, I have worked closely with hundreds of legislators at the city, state and federal levels. But Scott Brown has been one of a kind.
When I was running a long-shot campaign for U.S. Senate in 2010, Scott’s special election victory early that year gave me a lot of optimism that candidates like us — who are committed to free enterprise, limited government and conservative solutions to today’s challenges — were on the right track. Once I joined him in the Senate, we quickly became friends and he became a trusted partner in fighting the good fight for the causes we believe in.
I have also worked with Jeanne Shaheen. She too is a decent person with whom I’ve had a cordial relationship and worked on some issues. But 99 percent of the time, she has voted for President Obama’s agenda — an agenda that has saddled us with more debt, more uncertainty about the future at home and abroad, but not enough jobs. In this race, Scott Brown is simply a better choice for those like me who are tired of the direction America is headed and are fighting to make sure the American Dream doesn’t slip away forever. Scott’s three decades of National Guard service give him a unique perspective to national security debates at a time when the world seems as unstable as ever, and Americans face terror threats that are both foreign and homegrown. Scott is a thoughtful conservative, but he also does not hesitate to look his colleagues and party leaders in the eye and say, “I think you’re wrong, and I’m going to do what I believe is right.”
