    Concord, NH – Although tonight’s debate was closed to the public – i.e., there was no live television studio audience – one thing was clear from being on the ground in New Hampshire: Unlike two nights ago, Scott Brown fans were there and energized. It may be hard to see, but one Brown supporter (below in the red rain jacket) was wielding a microphone, leading “Go Scott Go” chants hours before the cameras rolled. In the background, you can see where the debate is being held (alas, I did not gain access myself), and to the far left (not shown)...

    Pushed Thursday night on whether she would want President Barack Obama to campaign with her as she seeks a second term, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) said it doesnt make sense and Obama is exactly where he needs to be in Washington. We have a lot going on, Shaheen said during an hourlong debate with Republican Scott Brown at NH1s studio in Concord, which was broadcast live on WBIN-TV and was co-sponsored by CNN. I dont think it makes sense for the president to come to New Hampshire right now. Shaheen doesnt have a shortage of star power coming to...

    Democrat Ann Kuster has been representing New Hampshire's 2nd congressional district since 2013. As our own Matt Vespa has extensively covered, New Hampshire State Republican Marilinda Garcia is challenging Kuster for her seat. At this point, the race is a toss up with less than two weeks to go until Election Day. Yesterday Kuster's campaign held a pro-abortion, pro-choice event in an effort to rally liberal voters and forgot to take down the Halloween decorations portraying death in the background.

    One reporters opinion isnt the end-all, be-all of political analysis. But as a respected, Boston-based reporter, Andy Hillers contention that Brown won the debate last night is worth listening to nonetheless. Shaheen lost the debate because she had to spend so much time on the defensive, explaining the presidents policies on Ebola, Obamacare, ISIS and immigration, he said. She was much more effective in the second half when she directly challenged Brown. But Brown won, he continued. He never looked uncomfortable, he has cable network level communication skills, and in this debate the issues were on his side. He wasnt...

    The U.S. Senate candidates sparred in their first televised debate Tuesday as part of a cliff-hanger of a race that could shift the balance of power in Washington. Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown debated energy, Ebola, immigration, jobs and the economy, national security and health care. They were first asked to share their views of the U.S. response to the threat of Ebola. Brown said the U.S. needs a travel ban. "I'm thankful that Senator Shaheen broke with President Obama in that regard" and decided to support a travel ban, he said.

    As you can imagine, I was alarmed, but not very surprised, when I received reports of rioting at the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH. The residents of Keene hold the Pumpkin Festival annually. Their mission is first and always to amass the most number of jack-o-lanterns in history. In 2013 they broke the previous record held by Boston when they brought together 30,581 jack-o-lanterns, according to accounts by the Keene Sentinel.But into their 30,581 points of light this year was inserted sinister, dark forces. Forces that were nonsensical, dystopian and anarchical.And those forces descended into the hallmark expression of Obamas...

    Scott Brown is staging a late-game comeback in New Hampshire and the analysts at the Cook Political Report have taken notice. Even though Scott Brown has been trailing for months in the polls, a couple of new surveys show hes nipping at Sen. Jeanne Shaheens (D-NH) heels. Perhaps in part because he's become more visible in recent weeks, or perhaps because national security issues are starting to take center stage, the analysts believe Brown is now a formidable candidate. From their write-up:

    As gun control proponent Gabby Giffords gets more "aggressive" in her push for gun control candidates, at least one of those candidates is distancing herself from the ads Giffords is running. New Hampshire's WMUR 9 ABC reports that though incumbent Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH 1st District) is thoroughly in favor of gun control, the tone of attack in Giffords' new ad is simply too much for her. The video on the outlet's website clearly demonstrates Shea-Porter's desire to move away from being associated with the former representative's ad.

    The contrast between New Hampshires two candidates for U.S. Senate couldnt have been clearer this past weekend. In one town, Senator Jeanne Shaheen spoke to the International Brotherhood Of Electrical Workers over a pancake breakfast, and in another, former Senator Scott Brown received a rowdy and enthusiastic reception at a tailgate organized by College Republicans at the University of New Hampshire. It sounds like a normal weekend in October, so why the significance? I cant help but marvel at the juxtaposition: a traditional, pre-planned campaign event with the candidate as the main attraction and the other, a tailgate loosely organized...

So the Senate race is just too close to call. 2.8% of respondents would prefer another candidate and 2.3% are unsure.

I think we have a problem where the presidents foreign policy is being trapped by his campaign rhetoric, Ayotte said. Im very fearful as we look at the current military strategy that it is surrounding the November elections, and he wont have the resolve to follow through with what needs to be done in a sustained effort to destroy ISIS.

    With one month until Election Day, Republicans' chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans. The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much...

    If the New Hampshire race is like others in some respects, it is unique in at least one. Brown, 55, moved to the state to run. The race is his third for the Senate in five years. Shaheen, 67, is a known political commodity in New Hampshire. She was elected, to this Senate seat, in 2008 when Obama won the state. "She's won in a wave and lost in a wave," says former Rep. Frank Guinta, a Republican. "I think she's as susceptible as anyone is." That view that even a well-established politician can lose if enough voters sour...

NPR measures Obama’s job approval at (41/56) in states with contested Senate races, and an abysmal (29/67) among independents. But on the generic Senate ballot, the GOP leads by just three, fueled by a 16-point advantage among those aforementioned independents: In case you’re curious, NPR’s partisan sample is a reasonable, if slightly generous, D+4. Fox News’ pollster included two more states in their survey, but excluded Alaska. Results: Unless I’m missing something glaringly obvious (Fox’s poll sample is D+0, in line with 2010), I can’t quite wrap my...

Shaheen, who is seeking a second term, is leading Republican challenger Scott Brown, the former Senator from Massachusetts, by about five points.
