Republican Scott Brown wins New Hampshire U.S. Senate primary

Scott Brown, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, answers a question from the audience during a town hall campaign stop at a VFW post in HudsonSenator Scott Brown won the nod from New Hampshire Republican voters on Tuesday to take on Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen in November, in a race his party sees as a chance to gain control of the Senate. Throughout his six-month campaign, Brown had largely ignored his party rivals to focus on Shaheen, trying to tie her directly to President Barack Obama, whose popularity has dropped in the largely rural state in recent months. Brown, a lawyer and father of two grown daughters, carried that message directly into his acceptance speech. “New Hampshire voters have a unique chance to be a check and balance on six years of failed policies,” Brown told supporters at a Concord conference center.
