In 2012, when then Senator Scott Brown squared off against Elizabeth Warren, he labeled his Democratic opponent "an outsider," someone who wanted to nationalize what was a state contest. Now Brown is challenging Senator Jean Shaheen in New Hampshire, and again, he's trying to nationalize the race by linking Shaheen to president Obama — and the Affordable Care Act.

And he's getting a lot of help from outside political money, which is flooding the race.
