WTF?  I don;t get this idea that someone running for Senate from a state doesn't have to actually live there.  Or Congressman, either.  Yeah, I know it happens, but... why would you vote for a carpetbagger?  It makes no sense to me.

It's kind of implied, but not stated. After all, there is free movement of citizens in the US between states, so one can get the required residency quickly.  I suspect U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton which decided states couldn't add non-US-constitutional limits on congressional elections (term limits in that case) also means that even the general requirement of residency wouldn't stand up if pushed.

Well, I do remember when Hilary Clinton ran in NY - at the time, it was touted as the only place (or one of the few, it was a while back) one could run for Senate without actually having residency.  So, the states are apparently having say-so, whether or not SCOTUS might strike it down.

Scott Brown made not a single vote against the GOP when it would have mattered. - Their would have been no difference sending this "moderate" to the senate then voting for someone who voted 100% conservative.

You were fooled Mass.

I hope everyone who voted for Scott Brown moves to NH.  Massachusetts would be a whole lot better off.

sales tax might be higher in MA but I think NH pays higher property taxes.  One way or another we're paying the piper.

We weren't fooled, much.  I can't reward total incompetence.  At least Brown acted as if he wanted the job.  But once re-election time came around and Warren was running....goodbye Scottso.

/and Brown getting elected may have been the impetus that made Democrats finally decide to use reconciliation to pass the ACA

Scott Brown 2014: From Tea Bagger to Carpetbagger

Scott Brown: Fark you, Mass

He did enough of that while in office, now he has to do it one at a time like the rest of us.

Maybe Brown is a part of this movement: http://freestateproject.org/
 
2014-04-02 01:52:53 PM
Let's also not forget that he's running against a pretty popular former governor who has national name recognition.

If he really wanted to be NH's Senator, if he really wanted to be a "moderate", he'd wait a few years and primary Kelly Ayotte, who is far weaker politically  than Jeanne Shaheen, and is a little too teabaggery to make most NH residents comfortable.

They won't.  NH has a longstanding inferiority complex about being wholly dependent economically on Massholia and a lot of internal strife between the more rural (and GOP) interior/rural/Northern towns and the Boston-commuting cities (Concord, Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth and surrounding 'burbs).  He isn't the first MA politician washout who's seen New Hampshire as a sloppy-seconds target where the shared Boston/NH media market makes it too easy to go venue-shopping without needing to give up one's native base of support.  They farking loathe carpetbaggers as a whole, but for a statewide office it's even worse because every non- Boston-commuting area of the state already has that built in suspicion of those amongst them cavorting with the enemy south of the border.  (And actually, with only 2 U.S. House districts evenly divided between rural and urban those are de facto statewide offices too).  So it doesn't matter if there's a strongish GOP base with affinity to his positions...because those voters--who are overrepresented in the GOP primary--happen to be the MOST hostile of all to carpetbaggers and the state's dependency on Massachusetts.

It's no-win.  And he probably won't make it out of the primary even if he does flood the state with money.


Exactly.  The fact that he's running here immediately after losing in MA has a lot of people pretty pissed.  It was obvious he was planning it for a while, too.  I took this pic last summer in Hampton:

The motherfarker should go back where he belongs.  NH isn't a consolation prize for not being able to make it in MA.

Also, the anti-Shaheen ads have been in full force for a few weeks now.  I am not looking forward to the last month or so leading up to the election.
 
2014-04-02 02:06:54 PM
Oh goody... I look forward to this charlatan making an ass out of himself and having his ass handed to him by a vastly superior woman.

There's no such thing as a "Moderate Republican"... Brown voted wit the GOP when it mattered to them.

A vote for Brown is a vote for all the regressive nonsense the GOP supports.

But so informative.  I mean, who would have guessed that she was the single deciding vote for Obamacare.  I'm surprised the ads haven't claimed she personally authored the law and the the Supreme Court decision to uphold it.

Of course he has!! He's going to lose this race, but it will keep the donations coming in for another year, and keep him relevant on the talk show circuit for a while, and then his book on his political career "Binders Full of Women I've Lost To" will keep him as a news contributer.

Eventually, in an attempt to seem "moderate" MSNBC will give him a show.

you know, he's a douche but I thought him joining Fox was beneath his standards. If he has to be a pundit anywhere, MSNBC could tolerate him
