New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesman Harrell Kirstein issued the following statement Thursday on the Brown news:
"Scott Brown is for Scott Brown and the powerful interests that back him, not New Hampshire. So when he gets back from his next trip to Iowa, he'll find himself in a tough Republican Primary against Republicans who are actually from New Hampshire. If he survives that, he’ll face an even tougher general election against Jeanne Shaheen, whose common sense leadership makes a difference for New Hampshire and people here know it. New Hampshire isn't going to let Scott Brown and his big oil buddies like the Koch Brothers buy themselves a Senate seat."
