With less than 6 days to go, Republican Scott Brown is sticking to several key themes as he makes a final push for votes in the race for U.S. Senate.
The latest NH1 poll shows Brown tied with Democrat incumbent Jeanne Shaheen. The pair, who have already faced off in a pair of televised debates, meet one more time tomorrow night.
Brown responded to a Washington Post editorial accusing him of using fear tactics to moviate voters. Brown says there's a "rational fear" among voters about issues like ISIS and Ebola because of the President's policies, and there needs to be a more serious conversation about securing the U.S. borders.
"The Homeland Security Chief has beefed up the awareness and security at 9500 federal buildings. Why? Is there a threat? Well, obviously there is."
On the issue of Ebola, while calling nurses and health professionals helping to stem the spread of Ebola in Africa "heroes", Brown says that those same people should be prepared to be quarantined, pointing out that U.S. soldiers are quarantined upon their return from service in those areas. Brown says that the recent case of New York doctor Craig Spencer underscores that a self-quarantine policy can fall victim to poor judgement, and that Nurse Kaci Hickox, currently self-quarantined in Maine, also should have remained under watch by doctors.
On lighter topics, Brown shared several CDs he'd recently purchased, including 80's rock bands like Tesla, Cinderella, and Kix. He also admitted that his wife is no longer very enthusiastic about getting into his famous pickup truck, saying it'll be in need of cleaning after next week's election.
