Scott Brown Wins NH Primary Bid for U.S. Senate

Former Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Scott Brown won New Hampshire’s Republican U.S. Senate primary on Tuesday, moving forward in his attempt to get back to Washington from another state.
Even though Brown was from a neighboring state, Republican leaders viewed him as the strongest challenger to incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in a race that could be critical in the Republicans’ drive to regain a Senate majority.
Brown shocked the nation in 2010 by winning a special election in Massachusetts for the Senate seat long held by the late Democratic stalwart Edward Kennedy. He then lost that seat in 2012 to a populist Democrat.
