Shaheen: I'm 'Proud' of Voting With Obama 99% Of The Time

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) expressed that she was “proud” to have voted with President Barack Obama 99 percent of the time during her debate with Republican challenger Scott Brown on Thursday.

When moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Shaheen about her record with the president, Shaheen did not contest that she has voted with the president 99 percent of the time, but argued “I work and I vote for New Hampshire, that’s what I’ve always done … I’m proud of my record.” She then pointed to her votes on defense bills, and the Fair Pay Act while saying she voted for those bills because they were good ideas, not because the president supported them.
