The Scott Brown campaign Wednesday morning is keying on a brief exchange in last night’s over support for, and from, small businesses in a new 15-second television ad.
In the debate in Concord, Brown asked Sen. Jeanne Shaheen why she has a zero percent rating from the National Federation of Independent Business during the current Congress.
Shaheen dismissed the question, saying the NFIB “is another Koch-funded organization,” a reference to the billionaire conservative Koch brothers.
Her campaign followed up later by calling it a “meaningless rating from a Koch brothers front group.” Brown says he has a 94 percent lifetime rating with the group, while Shaheen’s rating is 34 percent.
In today’s 15-second ad, a narrator notes her zero rating and says she is “standing with Obama not New Hampshire.”
Brown is expected to address what his campaign calls Shaheen’s “insult” towards the NFIB during a stop at the Wire Belt Company of America in Londonderry on Wednesday.
