Democrats use Romney strategy on Scott Brown

A new political ad against Republican Scott Brown could easily have been an attack ad against Mitt Romney in 2012.

One of the toughest spots to hit Brown this cycle, the 30-second ad paints the former senator from Massachusetts as a "yes man" to a large corporation that has outsourced jobs.

While the ad never mentions Romney, who campaigned for Brown this summer, the outsourcing attack was a key strategy used by Democrats two years ago when Romney, a former private equity executive, was running for president.

Shaheen goes on the attack against Brown

(CNN) - The Democratic incumbent in a key Senate race that may very well decide which party controls the chamber next year is going up with her first attack ad against her likely Republican challenger.

The campaign of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire announced Wednesday morning that they're launching a new TV commercial that highlights what they say is former Sen. Scott Brown's record of protecting big oil companies. The spot is the eighth of Shaheen's 2014 re-election campaign, but the first to criticize Brown, the former GOP senator from neighboring Massachusetts who moved to the Granite State late last year and is considered the heavy favorite to win next month's Republican Senate primary.

Mitt Romney back in a familiar spot

(CNN) - When former Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts began to seriously think about launching a campaign for the Senate in neighboring New Hampshire, "one of the first calls he made to talk about running was to Gov. Mitt Romney," a close adviser to Brown tells CNN.

Wednesday, the two men talked again, as the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee officially endorsed Brown, the frontrunner among the Republican candidates hoping to challenge Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire this November.
