Ready for Hillary goes hyperlocal in New Hampshire special election

Washington (CNN) – Ready for Hillary, a super PAC urging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, is in New Hampshire on Tuesday, working to help influence a Granite State special election before voters go to the ballot box.

Although the move is unique for a national super PAC focused on the 2016 election, it could be considered an early investment that could later pay off in New Hampshire, which holds the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

Scott Brown makes location flub

(CNN) – A liberal group is jumping on former Sen. Scott Brown, who's flirting with a Senate bid in New Hampshire, for making a slight political fumble Thursday night when he mixed up the New England state he was visiting.

"What I've heard from the Republicans up here is they're thankful that I've been around for a year, helping them raise money, helping them raise awareness as to the issues that are affecting not only people here in Massachusett–uh, in New Hampshire, but also in Massachusetts, obviously," the Republican said, quickly catching himself as he spoke to reporters in Londonderry, New Hampshire.
