Scott Brown Writes Off Bay State Naysayers

Posted October 21, 2014 at 2:21pm

Senate hopeful Scott P. Brown has no interest in what non-believers from his former home state have to say about his bid to topple New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.  

“I’m not gonna worry about what, you know, somebody from Massachusetts thinks about a New Hampshire race,” the one-time Bay State Republican assured Boston radio show host Howie Carr Tuesday. Good thing, given that pols from his former stomping grounds are helping Shaheen mount a counteroffensive .  

Team Shaheen seemed particularly flabbergasted by Brown’s seemingly dismissive attitude. “Really?” quipped a Shaheen adviser.  

Brown, however, appears determined to keep on keepin’ on.  

“This is real. It’s positive. The energy’s just off the charts,” he told Carr about the current campaign. “And it just feels good.”
