Brown To Start New Hampshire Senate Bid Thursday

CONCORD, N.H. — Republican Scott Brown is officially kicking off his campaign for New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate seat on Thursday.

After months of speculation, the former Massachusetts senator moved to New Hampshire in December, created an exploratory committee last month and spent the last few weeks traveling around the state meeting voters. He plans to formally announce his campaign Thursday night in Portsmouth.

Brown won a special election in Massachusetts in 2010 and then lost his seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012.

Hoping for a chance to unseat Democrat Jeanne Shaheen this fall, Brown faces former U.S. Sen. Bob Smith, former state Sen. Jim Rubens and conservative activist Karen Testerman in the GOP primary

    Well, this ought to teach us quite a bit about New Hampshire voters…

    The liberty to follow our moral conscience and choose our own way frees each of us to develop our unique abilities, maximize our contribution to civilization, and thus help unleash civilization’s full potential.

    More dangerous to liberty than the notion of merit-based rewards is the notion of “distributive justice”; a notion that requires each of us be subjected to centralized control.
