Scott Brown’s New Hampshire Senate campaign sent a news release Wednesday questioning why Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) wasn’t appearing with President Obama while he was “in town.”By "about 50 miles," the Washington Post actually means "less than 40 miles," but at least, unlike Brown's campaign, they correctly identify Worcester as being in Massachusetts, not New Hampshire. Brown's campaign is all, "we meant New England," but when you're talking about the state your candidate previously represented in the United States Senate, you don't have the luxury of engaging in this kind of loose regionalizing. So consider that already-weaksauce attempt to yoke Shaheen to Obama a complete failure.
But Obama was in Worcester, Mass., about 50 miles from the New Hampshire border.
Anyway, it's par for the course not just from a Massachusetts-to-New Hampshire carpetbagger, but also from a candidate who was previously confused about which state he was born in.
