Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) sent out a fundraising email on behalf of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) after former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) suggested he might run for Senate in New Hampshire.
"If he enters this race, Jeanne will immediately become the top target of Karl Rove and the Tea Party Super PACs," Gillibrand wrote in the fundraising email sent out on Friday. "Jeanne needs our help now to prepare for the attacks from Brown and his allies. Theyve launched a 'Granitebomb' campaign to fight back."
Less than 24 hours earlier Brown was asked about a possible campaign in New Hampshire. Shaheen is up for reelection in 2014.
"I don't think I'm done with politics, but I'm not going to rule out anything right now because I really haven't thought a heck of a lot about it," Brown said, according to CNN.
In her fundraising email, Gillibrand described Brown, who lost reelection to now-Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in 2012, as a "billionaire-backed Republican."
"You read that right: A billionaire-backed Republican from Massachusetts who voted against equal pay and critical job-creation bills wants to take on Jeanne Shaheen a tremendous champion for our progressive values," Gillibrand writes in the email.
"Brown raised $37 million in 2012 and spent it on partisan negative attacks against Elizabeth Warren."
Gillibrand's goal in the email is to raise a total of $100,000 to "send a message to Scott Brown and his Tea Party allies that we have [Shaheen's] back."
Um, what ? Rove is an enemy of the Tea Party.
Lies, Distortions, and insults declaring Karl Rove and Tea Party on the same side of the political fence.
Insulting I say
/s for those who do not get it
NH doesn't need any carpetbaggers!
Commie gun grabbers whining about the TEA Party. It’s a good thing these scumbags weren’t around in 1775. They would have been running along beside the British in Lexington and Concord shouting, “It’s an ambush!”
Go Scott Brown! Yo may be a RINO but Shaeen is a hard core lefty. She will not only grab my guns, she will go after my wallet and my sanity.
Gillibrand is just a sock puppet. The hand moving the mouth is Chuck U. Schumer.
Chuck U has Gillibrand well trained.
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
geez. this leftist brown has the bug bad.
nobody in the tea party will support scott brown again. fool me once, shame on you. fool me twice shame on me.
the bush crony rove, sure, he’s one of theirs.
What gun grabbing has Scott Brown supported?
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New Hampshire ping list. Does anyone else have have a New Hampshire ping list besides my very modest one?
After Newtown, Scott Brown said he was in favor of banning “assault weapons.”
He’s also in favor of banning private sales and licensing mere possession of firearms. So much for the Second Amendment.
Yikes! Another RINO, I thought he might have been some kind of libertarian.
I won’t say a word until I hear more.
Sending our DiFi mini-me back to DC is unacceptable. Brown could win.
You are 100% correct. I hate her demagogue guts. Absolutely hate her. Her latest is to push through NYS legislation last April authorizing USDA workers to enter my favorite birding spot, a federal wildlife refuge, and murder all the Canada geese there, on the flimsiest of evidence that they had something to do with Sully Sullenberger’s “Miracle on the Hudson” crash.
Thanks for the ping!
“What gun grabbing has Scott Brown supported?”
