Senate Majority PAC is up with a new TV ad attacking former Sen. Scott P. Brown, R-Mass., over a report that he attempted to torpedo an energy bill sponsored by the New Hampshire Democrat he’s taking on in his Senate comeback bid.

The ad slams Brown as a carpetbagger and refers to the Huffington Post report last week that Brown had lobbied against an energy efficiency bill backed by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio.

The Democrat-aligned super PAC put approximately $350,000 behind the ad, which will run for two weeks, according to a spokesman.

“Scott Brown lobbied Republican leaders to kill the bill,” the ad’s narrator says, “hurting Shaheen and helping himself gain another Senate seat.”

 

Brown also released a new ad Thursday. It plays up his New Hampshire roots — “I’ve been a homeowner in Rye for over 20 years” — while tying Shaheen to President Barack Obama and the health care law she voted for.

The race is rated Democrat Favored by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.

    WHAT ARE THE DEMOCRATS PREPARED TO DO ABOUT THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL? DO THEY PLAN TO WASH THEIR HANDS OF THE WHOLE ISSUE? THERE ARE STILL MORE THAN 2.6 MILLION UNEMPLOYED FAMILES WITHOUT ANY MEANS TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES SINCE LAST DECEMBER. THEY NEED YOUR HELP PEOPLE. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE ALREADY TURNED THEIR BACKS AGAINST THEM, AND HAVE TRIED EVERY DELAYING TACTIC KNOWN TO MAN, SO THE BILL COULD NOT BE PASSED IN TIME. THESE MILLIONS OF FAMILIES, FOR THE PAST FIVE MONTHS HAVE SUFFERED EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, BECAUSE OF YOUR LACK OF COMPASSION AND HUMAN DECENCY. THE UKRAINE HAS RECENTLY BEEN GIVEN BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FOREIGN AID, WHAT ABOUT THE POOR AND UNEMPLOYED IN THIS COUNTRY? THE PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER THIS ISSUE IN THE COMING ELECTIONS, AND IT WILL BE OUR TUEN TO VOTE, AND TO VOTE MANY OF YOU OUT OF OFFICE
