Boston Herald endorses Scott Brown for NH Senate

Not a huge surprise - this is not the Boston Globe.
"New England Republicans may be scarce in Congress but New England voters who consider themselves moderate or conservative aren’t exactly in short supply. And in the November election Scott Brown represents one of the best chances for those voters to have their voices heard in Washington. The Herald is pleased to endorse Brown for election to the U.S. Senate from New Hampshire.
The erstwhile Massachusetts senator has tapped into a campaign theme that ought to resonate with our neighbors to the north. He is a Republican, but he is a consensus-builder. During his legislative and congressional career he has voted with Republicans, and he has voted with Democrats. Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, the incumbent Brown hopes to unseat, can’t make the same claim.
Consensus from the Democrats only involves a consensus among the left.
As that clever pro-Brown ad now in heavy rotation notes, Shaheen has voted with President Obama and her party 99 percent of the time during her time in the Senate. That’s an astonishing record for a senator from a state generally known for its independence. New Hampshire may be bluer than it used to be — it went for Obama twice — but it’s hardly … well, it’s hardly Massachusetts.
Live Free or Die New Hampshire, live free, or die.
