Warning us now on the line is former senator Scott Brown is running for -- the Republican nomination to -- in New Hampshire. To run against -- tree team in November and a month ago little -- month ago he was twelve points behind Jeanne Shaheen. And the same mind as the same poll came out -- last night to granite state poll. Sponsored by WMU or channel line and conducted by the University of New Hampshire survey center now has the race via. Horse race. Within the margin of error of Shaheen has 46%. And brown has 44%. Congratulations Scott what are you well what do you attribute this though. Well personally I was you know polls are gonna go up and they attributed to the fact -- were -- they're trying to earn everybody's boat building town halls we've had four major town hall while she's -- -- she's avoiding the issues -- -- you know telling people why she was the deciding vote and obamacare why. They can't keep their doctor's wife she wrote a letter to -- -- -- conservative -- being investigated. So on and so on and so on and -- -- -- -- going to people living rooms at businesses shares races trample on just you know curry says you know we're everywhere just just to you know I I enjoy it very very much so. Just getting out. And they're blaming it on there's a -- they're saying that -- a lot of this that they think some of for decline is just the fact that Obama's been cradling just nationally and -- -- and. And let them let them believe whatever they want a believer that it doesn't change the numbers and here's the here's the big thing how we right now I have what five super taxed running ads against me -- -- another indicator that that it is what it is and also a she's in California right now raising money and I ask everybody -- -- listen right now to get -- -- -- -- common -- -- can't do that and close that gap and bring it home and -- final matter is I sort of primary and were only down -- well we get to the primary and we unite the party at her worst nightmare. She's -- yep she's. You don't there's a store in the Wall Street Journal today about how while the Democrats are still out raising the Republicans I mean Harry Reid is managed to scare the hell out of the Democrats with a Coke Brothers. Even though the Coke Brothers -- -- you'll hikers compared to the what the pack the democratic -- are raising. Times -- and all the radical environmentalists together out there raising good money and or I'm finding is it's not gonna be won by these outside groups running -- it really is going to be won by going to people and asking him earning their vote that's how it's going to be one year in New Hampshire I think in other parts of the country as well. Maybe you wait what are you gonna -- -- -- -- to wait till after the primary have you challenger to debate shot. Well I have a debate tomorrow will be my third one against my primary opponents and two more after that night yeah of course and we should be doing debates. Happy to do them -- at least you know eight or nine is it is expected to without even blinking I would hope that she would do them she can not do debates. Catching up with. Ask Scott White people should vote for him after the other GO and instead of the other GOP candidates that's from that storm want to. Sure well the first the first. Where's it from -- -- six. Well they can they can come over in the same day registration is certainly a lot of saying they want to come -- -- -- feel compelled to do so on -- six that may become much well whatever it is they can come -- but here here's the issue -- -- down to I can win this race and -- she's just wrong for -- on all the issues and anyone of -- would make -- better senator than -- running against two good guys I respect them and their and their followers -- when you're looking -- who can actually unseat a sitting United States senator. I would argue I have the experience the tools in the resources and the drive to do. Yeah why me why is that comes again I'm being as always I'm being the -- against people that are bitter that direct link. Why that's fine but why do they mean why do they hate why -- think this'll be mean and again it's a small minority why do these people hate you so much. Well what you're talking about it there were the say I'll never vote for a rhino again people. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah the issue -- did you see that Harry Reid had to apologize to Asians yesterday. He may die he made some dumb mug number racist. Not surprised Harry Reid's the most mean spirited worst majority leader in the country and history of our. Our country hey he's just the main one of the main reasons it is so much gridlock -- -- It's it's it's we have to make in the minority leader and a computer how it's it's as simple as that. You've been really hammering her on the border lately -- mention. Cameron are just playing at a record a Little Rock music music excuse me I'm using. A -- was an orange -- word. I know I know. -- -- at an accountant and that and we've both have records that is the good news about this race we both have records in the United States senate. And there that appraiser appear to criticize and she voted twice against sending troops to the border. She's in favor of the dream actually promoting those porous borders ya gonna talk about something mr. medically affecting. Our national security and I'm also gonna talk about what's happening over in Iraq and Afghanistan. Incur media in Georgia and Ukraine in in Israel yeah I'm gonna talk about it is as a member at the foreign relations committee she is endorsed those failed policies. 99% of the time yeah had a talk about a record in I don't remember that being off base. Yeah yeah you don't. I instruct I really am shocked that you know the the joint the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says that the one of the problems we've got what crisis is the porous borders. In the immigration issues. We were bombing crisis in its in Iraq but where. But we're letting them come across the border unimpeded. In the southwest. How does that make sense. It makes no sense is still leadership while I believe. I don't know about you when I'm sitting around -- and a -- just kind of you know reasonable -- and I'm thinking about how the world on fire was happening -- Israel what's happening in Libya Syria Afghanistan. Obviously Iraq and the most recent beheading of somebody was just doing his job it's outrageous what's happening in the president's golf and you have people who are complaining that they're doing very little and -- thankful that he's finally doing something in and I agree that we should be going after -- command control I believe we can do it. To our air superiority in just put him back on the heels on the courage and our allies and then look to us helps strengthen the Iraqi Army to push back and and recaptured reorganize. Back October 11 they simply don't leave as is you'll have a void that'll be filled by a terrorist groups and well here we are so surprised. But again we don't do anything about the border they the you know Kandahar says get -- says the -- that they're -- court just go across the border. And and in comment 21 in another tight they issued a warning to all the major cities today. The the department of homeland security and this is the -- Boston in the meantime is the City Council is saying we're gonna hold illegal aliens. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What is your position on if people wanna -- asked again and again or the the the assault weapons. Did you put -- that what did you did you vote yes or no on the assault weapons. Yes how are you were there you covered it you know -- we did -- the assault weapons in Massachusetts. It passed overwhelmingly I think like a 190. And and we have the pro and anti gun advocates at the table with the governors signing it because it addressed issues that concern both sides and we didn't. -- everybody being at the table together it's two different animals it was a something very parochial and specific to Massachusetts. Some gun owner I I have a -- nights at ten violations to carry in and I -- well trained in and firearms and have been you know firings since I was nineteen years old. I'm not going down and propose any new gun legislation. She has announced -- -- it was all those ratings are -- always been closed and quite frankly let's take that one issue that we you know I don't know everything that's why I said I would keep an open door and -- guidance from people who own little more than and I. We agree then name a 100% of everything now. So we have a choice. You know I -- an -- -- doesn't it -- and asked and answered every time Michael Allen with.

Let's find good the more people we talked to her but I talk about it I mean I just misspoke and by the the don't know Hampshire folks for two hours -- -- their questions they've. It's all that so that is but it is -- and I'm pretty comfortable where I stand and our ability to protect ourselves. All right so what is where she now what is your position on what does or does her position on the on the on guns what how she -- it.

In minus two verses a lifetime lifetime in Manchester watch what they want to address directly these people again for the and -- this -- therein -- now he's ever parity because you're getting one or two Texans talked about it they -- -- -- one. That actually but yet but you know and I know it's but don't get. I'm hearing -- out there right -- is around his battalion are right now in in New Hampshire that I about the fact that we had. Whatever on beheaded by a terrorist group the talking about how our energy prices are going up and senators changed proposing more taxes are talking about porous border and immigration and how can be stopped at once and for all the talking about. How the gridlock in Washington talking about a health care bill it's gonna crush businesses after the election. Camera that Howard because of the businessman -- going and after the election people attacking me about those things how they can put money in their. Kids' college education in their their retirement savings and that's what I talked about almost 24/7. And we are completely different on every one of those issues.
