In the closing days of the campaign for U.S. Senate, Jeanne Shaheen is relying on fellow Democrats to help rally the base and get out the vote.
Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin was the latest to visit Wednesday, making several stops, including a get-together with leaders of the LGBT community in Concord. Baldwin is the first openly gay person ever elected to the U.S. Senate.
Senator Baldwin was also visiting with students at Colby-Sawyer College, Dartmouth College, and New England College. With polls showing the race between Brown and Shaheen neck-and-neck, Democrats are hoping getting out the youth vote will give Shaheen the critical edge.
In her interview with NH1 Radio News Director Jeff Wade, Senator Baldwin says part of the hesitation comes from students whose homes are out-of-state being unsure if they should register in New Hampshire, or back home.
Senator Baldwin also talked about Scott Brown's claim that Shaheen votes with President Obama 99% of the time. Noting that the President isn't a voting member of the Senate, she says "What I observeabout Jeanne Shaheen is that she votes for New Hampshire 100% of the time." She says that Shaheen votes in the interests of her constituents, and has worked across the aisle with Republicans like Senator Rob Portman of Ohio.
Shaheen and Brown face off in their final televised debate Thursday night.
