Will Immigration Swing New Hampshire to the GOP?

In New Hampshire, Scott Brown has pulled into a statistical dead heat with incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen. Brown is not a staunch conservative on every issue; if he were, he would not be competitive in purple New Hampshire. But one issue on which Brown is strong is immigration. That, plus the fact that by all accounts he has crushed Shaheen in their debates, has propelled him into a strong position. If Brown wins in New Hampshire, the GOP will have an insurance seat in the battle for control of the Senate, even if something goes haywire in Kansas or Kentucky. So both parties are pouring resources into the Granite State.

Conservative bellwether Jeff Sessions is backing Brown strongly:

Open borders billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is spending one million dollars to defeat Scott Brown. He knows that a Scott Brown victory is a massive defeat for Obama’s extreme immigration policies. Scott Brown’s opponent in this race, on the other hand, is a reliable vote for Obama’s immigration policies and his desire to bring in millions of new low-wage workers to compete for your jobs and wages.

The President’s immigration policies will reduce your pay, increase your tax bill, and squeeze millions of Americans out of the middle class.

We need to help struggling Americans find good jobs and rising pay – not import more low-wage workers to replace them.

Your donation to the Brown Campaign can help level the playing field.

This election is the epicenter of the fight to stop Obama’s immigration agenda. This is where we draw the line. This is where we make our stand.

Scott Brown has pledged to fight for American workers and American jobs. He has pledged to serve the working people of New Hampshire. He has pledged to protect our border so we can keep out threats- whether they be deadly terrorists or deadly viruses. …

President Obama announced his plans to nullify America’s immigration laws and issue a sweeping executive amnesty after the election. This action would give work permits, photo ID’s and Social Security numbers to millions of illegal immigrants – taking precious jobs directly from struggling Americans.

But you have the power to fight back. You have the power to send a bolt of lightning that will send shockwaves through Washington DC. You have the power to tell Obama and his open borders extremists: NO.

At this moment in history – at this grave hour – the single most effective thing you can do to stop Obama’s executive amnesty is to help elect Scott Brown.

Some people on the right say Scott Brown isn’t conservative enough. I say: if he’s conservative enough for Jeff Sessions, he’s conservative enough for me. Please go here to donate to Scott Brown’s campaign, or here to contribute to the New Hampshire GOP Victory Fund.

And finally, just for fun, here is a brief clip of Ann Coulter on Howie Carr’s radio show on Thursday, broadcasting from the Portsmouth Ship Yard and urging listeners to support Scott Brown:

The twin pillars of the Democrats’ strategy this year are to 1) bury Republicans with unprecedented amounts of money, and 2) maximize voter fraud. To try to combat voter fraud, you can sign up as a poll watcher at your local precinct. To help the GOP narrow a money gap that still stands at $40 or $50 million, you can contribute to Scott Brown’s campaign, or support one of the Power Line Picks on the right sidebar, or contribute to any good conservative candidate where you live. But this is a critical election, and one way or another, every conservative needs to be involved or the power-hungry liberals will win. It’s that simple.
