Sept. 12 - Kick Off

NH Update: Kick-Off

 SEPTEMBER 12, 2014

We have a lot of exciting news to discuss about the campaign this week, but before that, we need to start by recognizing and paying tribute to those lost on September 11, 2001.

As Senator Shaheen said: 13 years ago, terrorists launched a senseless attack on America that claimed nearly 3,000 lives – including 10 Granite Staters – and it’s a day that we will never forget. This week Senator Shaheen joined all Americans in honoring and remembering the lives of those we lost as well as the sacrifice and bravery of the first responders and men and women who volunteered to serve our nation and seek justice for those killed. Jeanne Shaheen also spent much of this week working in the Senate to help address critical national security issues.

As she wrote in Wednesday’s Concord Monitor, “We also must recognize that we still have more to do to secure our country, our people and our interests against the evolving terrorist threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. We must act decisively to destroy this terrorist group.”

Read her OpEd in the Concord Monitor about how the U.S. must confront and destroy ISIL.

General Election Kick-Off


Team Shaheen wasted no time kicking off the general election. We have been planning for months and now it is time for action. We’ve received overwhelming support wherever Senator Shaheen goes on the campaign trail, whether serving up chili with firefighters in Dover, meeting folks on the boardwalk at Hampton Beach or at her packed election night party on Tuesday.

The message was clear: Team Shaheen is fired up and ready to keeping working hard every day until November 4th.

Scott Brown Economics: Paycheck Fairness

While Senator Shaheen’s focus this week was on critical national security affairs, she also once a again voted for the Paycheck Fairness Act.

In 2014, there should not still be a gender wage gap in this country but unfortunately, women still earn on average 77 cents to the dollar earned by their male colleagues doing the same job. Scott Brown has twice voted against legislation to strengthen equal pay protections for women. That is wrong for New Hampshire.

All Hands On Deck


On Tuesday, Senator Shaheen kicked off the general election with a crowd of hundreds of friends and supporters in Manchester. Now, we need an all-hands-on-deck effort to get out every vote from now until Election Day. This is a true grassroots campaign and we need you to work as hard as you can each day to help us win in November.

Here’s what we need you to do right now:

Republicans for Shaheen

Meanwhile, Scott Brown struggled to get just half of Republican primary voters to vote for him on Tuesday. And can you blame them? Republicans and Independents are right to be wary – because Scott Brown is for Scott Brown, not for New Hampshire. Jeanne Shaheen has been honored to have the support of Granite State Republicans throughout her career because regardless of party, she puts New Hampshire first.

Join Republicans for Shaheen now.

Like Jim Steiner, a lifelong Republicans and Army veteran said: “In 2014, my vote will be cast to re-elect Shaheen. It is time to look at the quality of the leaders serving us, and not merely their political party.”

NEW WEB VIDEO: Scott Brown wrong for New Hampshire and Massachusetts

This morning, the Shaheen campaign released a new web ad titled “Nobody’s Senator,” which makes clear that Scott Brown is not someone New Hampshire voters can trust. The video contrasts Scott Brown’s rhetoric from a few years ago when he promised to be a Senator for Massachusetts with Scott Brown now claiming to put New Hampshire’s interests first.
