Scott Brown New Hampshire Bid To Be Formally Announced On Thursday

The long-awaited Scott Brown New Hampshire run is at hand, as the former Massachusetts Senator plans to formally announce his campaign on Thursday. In an email to supporters on Monday, Brown wrote his weeks of canvassing the state convinced him that “you want a health care system that works for New Hampshire.”.

National Republican supporters have already begun to buy ads supporting Brown’s challenge to incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, correctly viewing the race as another opportunity to end Democrats’ 55-43 majority in the Senate in November.

Brown has focused on his opposition to ObamaCare for months, penning several opt-eds criticizing Shaheen for her unwavering support for the law.

“Together, we can do all this, but it starts by changing leadership in Washington,” said Brown, who stunned the state’s Democratic Party when he won the U.S. Senate seat previously held by Edward M. Kennedy in 2010. “This is the people’s seat,” Brown repeated during the campaign.

Polls show Shaheen with a lead in the race, but we currently rate the race “Leans Democrat” on our 2014 Senate Map Predictions due to Brown’s strength as a candidate, as well as a deteriorating national environment for Democrats. Shaheen has already conceded she sees Brown as a threat, citing him over and over in fundraising emails even before Brown last month confirmed he had formed a committee to explore a run.

Brown, who was born in New Hampshire and moved his residence there late last year, said he would kick off his campaign in the coastal city of Portsmouth, in the state’s south.
