Capital Beat: Did Brown ‘lobby’ to stop Shaheen’s energy bill?

  • This photo taken March 22, 2014 shows former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown posing for a photo with a group of women at the Tilton Diner in Tilton, N.H. Brown is fighting to re-write political history as he tours New Hampshire. But there are early signs that the state's notoriously feisty voters may be reluctant to embrace the recent Republican transplant. Brown joined New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate race roughly a week ago. He moved to the state 13 weeks ago. Brown is trying to become the third person to serve more than one state in the Senate. The last one was elected more than two centuries ago. His residency figures to play prominently in his quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall.  (AP Photo/Jim Cole)

Breeze with sun. High 70, low 36. Gavin Lahey, 5, of Concord draws a most pleasant day. B8

Saw Gunta on WMUR this morning debating Dan Innis. He said that since Dan has only been voting in NH since 2008 he can't be expected to know New Hampshire. Wonder what he thinks of Scott Brown who has never voted in NH since he just moved here in December?

Is there a better title to this story? Maybe something along the lines of "no evidence of Brown lobbying against Shaheen bill, Harry Reid makes yet another statement based entirely on fantasy"??

100% blame on the defeat of the Shaheen bill lies directly at the feet of tyrant democrat leader Harry Reid. He promised debate on the Keystone Pipeline and again he LIED. Trusting democrats in Congress is like Charlie Brown trusting Lucy will not again yank away the football

Does Harry Reid have dementia? I have to believe at this point he is a national security risk.
