Will New Hampshire Voters Embrace Scott Brown?

March 17, 2014

He may be a former Senator from Massachusetts, but Scott Brown has taken a step toward becoming the future Senator from New Hampshire. Last week, Brown announced he’s formed an exploratory committee, and on Friday, he reminded the crowd at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference in Nashua that his Granite State roots run deep.  

Brown is one of several Republicans who could challenge incumbent Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen. But will New Hampshire voters embrace Brown? And will his independent voting record win over the Granite State GOP’s conservative base?
