US Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire has endorsed Scott Brown’s bid to unseat her Democratic colleague, Jeanne Shaheen. Ayotte has introduced him at rallies. And now, the Republican is singing Brown’s praises to a wider universe of voters in a new TV spot from the Brown campaign.
“You know, I’m the mother of a 9-year-old and a 6-year-old, and I want a better future,” Ayotte says in the low-key 30-second ad.
“I support Scott Brown because he’s for fiscal responsibility, accountable government, and finally a health care plan that works for all of us. He will give everything he’s got for New Hampshire,” she says in the spot.
Ayotte, following common practice among Senate colleagues, doesn’t attack Shaheen in the ad, instead focusing on talking about the country’s large debt and “Obamacare.”
A Brown spokeswoman said the air will start airing today on WMUR, WBIN, and cable TV stations in New Hampshire.
