Brown — who high-tailed it to New Hampshire with his carpet-bag after his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren trounced him in 2010 — is now running as the GOP challenger for Democrat Jean Shaheen’s Senate seat.
Since he still trails behind by two percent in the polls, Brown can certainly use any help he can get.
Boston.Com reports Brown seemed to have his hopes up when he appeared on Howie Carr’s radio show and encouraged a supporter who called in from Connecticut to “come on down” and vote for him.
(Come on, Scottie! Any one familiar with New England should know that you don’t get down to New Hampshire from Connecticut, you get down from a duck.)
Carr: “‘Ask Scott why people should vote for him instead of the other GOP candidates.’ That’s from Vermont actually.”
Brown: “Well sure. The first – Where’s that from? Vermont?”
Carr: “Yeah. 8-6-0. Yeah.”
Brown: “Well they can come over and do same-day registration and say they want to come down and vote. So if they feel compelled to do so, come on down.”
Carr: [Laughs] “Or is 8-6-0 Connecticut? That may be Connecticut. I’m not sure. I get confused.”
Brown: “Yeah well whatever it is, they can come up. But here’s the issue, Howie: I’m down two [points in the polls].
Listen to Scott Brown tell out-of-state supporter to come and vote for him anyway.
