Jeanne Shaheen launches her first TV ad of the race

CONCORD, N.H. — US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, facing a challenge for Scott Brown, today launched the first television advertisement of her re-election bid.

The 30-second spot, which a Shaheen aide said will air on local New Hampshire stations for at least a week, focuses on Shaheen’s accomplishments helping veterans in the state.

In the ad, veteran Dwight Clark says that Shaheen “cut through the red tape” to help get a Department of Veterans Affairs clinic open in the city of Keene.

“Jeanne Shaheen,” Clark says, “gets the job done for New Hampshire.”

In March, the Democrat launched her first radio ad — a spot that attacked Brown, a Republican.

Brown’s first TV ad was a positive spot focused on his travels across the state. It began airing in April.

Outside groups have aired a number of attack ads in the nascent campaign, knocking both candidates.

Brown faces a contested GOP primary and must win that contest before going head to head with Shaheen in the general election.
