Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions wades into NH Senate race


With less than five days before the election, a U.S. Senator who's been outspoken about immigration policy is rallying support for Scott Brown in his race to unseat Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.

Incumbent Republican Senator from Alabama Jeff Sessions is running for re-election unopposed next Tuesday. In the last week he's written a letter to New Hampshire Republicans urging them to get behind Scott Brown, telling NH1 Radio "At this moment in history - at this grave hour - the single most effective thing you can do to stop Obama's executive amnesty is to help elect Scott Brown."

Immigration is a key issue for Sessions, and he says Scott Brown winning in New Hampshire is critical to his cause.

"He has been a open and articulate advocate for a lawful system of immigration that projects our jobs and protects our national security," Sessions said.

Citing military officials who oversee affairs in Central and South America, Sessions also warns, "If Ebola gets into Central America, it's 'Katie bar the door' at our borders.'"

Here in New Hampshire, Brown has made the immigration issue a focal point of his campaign, accusing Jeanne Shaheen of backing pro-amnesty policies supported by President Barack Obama. Shaheen says she favors a "tough but fair path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants who are already living in the United States."
