    In Last Tuesdays win over Chris McDaniel, Senator Thad Cochran engaged in all manner of political chicanery and racial subterfuge. In a scheme concocted Haley Barbour, the Cochran campaign accused Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party of plotting to disenfranchise African-Americans. When asked to comment about Team Cochrans unethical and borderline illegal tactics NH GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown giggled demonically. I know youre not gonna like it, butI dont really care about what happened in Mississippi.

    Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was principally involved in a plot with Lois Lerner and President Barack Obamas political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative nonprofit groups during the 2012 election, according to letters exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) did not want to publicly release 2012 correspondences exchanged between the IRS and Jeanne Shaheen at her personal Washington office: the agency delayed releasing the information to a major conservative super PAC multiple times, even threatening to see the super PAC in court, according to emails.

    Brown is up 48.3 percent to Shaheens 46.8 percent in the poll of 1,132 likely voters statewide. The poll was conducted on Oct. 24, and has a margin of error of 2.91 percent. Dr. Wayne Lesperance, New England College's director of the Center for Civic Engagement, attributed Browns success to narrowing Shaheens lead among women voters. A 1.5 percent margin is incredibly narrow and makes this race a statistical dead heat. Browns recent success comes from narrowing the lead Shaheen had with women to just under 5 percent, Lesperance said. Shaheen has attempted to reignite the war on women rhetoric...

Jeanne Shaheen in his new home state, by linking her to Obama, whose favorability and job approval remain at all-time lows. "It's really not a matter of either candidate's popularity. It's a matter of President Obama's popularity," said Andrew Smith, director of the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. People don't pay much attention to the particulars of midterm election politics, he added. "Their sense of politics is what's going on with...

Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown debated energy, Ebola, immigration, jobs and the economy, national security and health care. They were first asked to share their views of the U.S. response to the threat of Ebola. Brown said the U.S. needs a travel ban. "I'm thankful that Senator Shaheen broke with President Obama in that regard" and decided to support a travel ban, he said.

    One reporters opinion isnt the end-all, be-all of political analysis. But as a respected, Boston-based reporter, Andy Hillers contention that Brown won the debate last night is worth listening to nonetheless. Shaheen lost the debate because she had to spend so much time on the defensive, explaining the presidents policies on Ebola, Obamacare, ISIS and immigration, he said. She was much more effective in the second half when she directly challenged Brown. But Brown won, he continued. He never looked uncomfortable, he has cable network level communication skills, and in this debate the issues were on his side. He wasnt...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Senate yesterday blocked a resolution praising the "crucial services" of abortionists and condemning violence against them in the wake of Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller's murder last month.The resolution, sponsored by Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), decried violence against "providers of health care services to women" and asserted, "there is a history of violence against providers of reproductive health care, as health care employees have suffered threats and hostility in order to provide crucial services to patients."The resolution failed to gather adequate support after Shaheen...

    Campaigning at BAE is rarely a cakewalk for Democrats, and if Jeanne Shaheen was under any illusion that she was going to have an easy morning of it, it was quickly punctured. We protect those that protect us and we were deeply disappointed. That was the events MC, Thomas Fitzpatrick, Vice President of BAEs electronic warfare division. .Deeply disappointed that the state Democratic party, on your behalf, characterized us as war profiteers,. bilking the public. Id like to know what you were thinking at the time when you sort of let that stand, and to this day it still stands....

    CONCORD, N.H. -- Any other year, it might have been a defining moment. At a debate for New Hampshire's U.S. Senate race held in a small town near here last week, a moderator relayed a question from a man called Skip, who wanted to know how the candidates would stand up to their party's leaders. Sen. John E. Sununu, a Republican completing his first term, noted his effort to include more civil liberties protections in the reauthorized version of the USA Patriot Act. But Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic former governor of the state, struggled to answer even after being pressed...

    It's official: Former Democratic Gov. Jeanne Shaheen is poised to beat both George W. Bush and A. Financial Crisis for New Hampshire's Senate seat. John Sununu? Who he? If you want to know why Republican candidates are struggling -- at risk of ceding Democrats unfettered control in Washington -- consider the Granite State. It highlights the new Democratic strategy of turning every race into a referendum on the current administration. Yet it's also proving that GOP reformers like Mr. Sununu are best positioned to fight back. Only a few weeks ago, Mr. Sununu, one of the Senate GOP's bright minds,...

    When Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, lists the November races that will swell his party's majority, New Hampshire is one of the first he brags about. Here on the ground, it looks a lot less certain that Democrat Jeanne Shaheen will cut short the promising career of Sen. John Sununu, namesake son of a White House chief of staff under the first President Bush. Shaheen, a former governor who lost a close race to Sununu six years ago in an environment much more hospitable to Republicans, was a double-digit favorite early...

    CONCORD Democratic Senate candidate Jeanne Shaheen's once imposing lead over U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu has all but vanished in recent months according to a University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll released today. Shaheen leads Sununu in this poll of likely voters, 46 percent to 42 percent, but the spread is within its margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percent. Pollster Andrew Smith stressed the race remains wide open since only 22 percent said they had definitely decided upon a candidate. During a telephone interview, Smith said voters are starting to focus more on the choices...
