Will raise money for Special Olympics
HAMPTON BEACH, N.H. —Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown hasn’t made a decision to jump in the U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire this year, but he has apparently decided jump head-first into the cold Atlantic Ocean this week for a good cause.
Brown will participate in the Penguin Plunge at Hampton Beach, an annual fundraiser for the New Hampshire Special Olympics. (News partner WMUR-TV is a major sponsor of the event.)
A WMUR Granite State Poll last week showed him behind U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen should he challenge her for re-election and in third place in the New Hampshire presidential primary.
While Democrats have spent about $150,000 in television ads trying to pour cold water on Brown getting into the Senate race, none of these ads will be as cold as the ocean on Groundhog’s Day.
