Scott Brown Spars with Debate Moderator; After Debate, Moderator Admits He Was Wrong
Scott Brown Tackles New Hampshire Geography In Final Debate (The Huffington Post)
Republican Senate challenger Scott Brown's efforts to cast himself as a New Hampshire native went awry in his final debate against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D) on Thursday when a question on economic problems facing Sullivan County turned into a geography lesson.
WMUR's James Pindell, a debate moderator, asked Brown and Shaheen to specify what is and isn't working economically for Sullivan County, which is located in far western New Hampshire. Brown, who moved to New Hampshire after losing his Massachusetts Senate seat in the 2012 election, responded by talking about the impact of Obamacare and high electricity rates, as well as opportunities to boost the ski industry. But he was interrupted twice by Pindell, who said Brown seemed confused about the location of the county in question.
