MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Radio’s Laura Ingraham on Tuesday morning said the GOP establishment has abandoned former Sen. Scott Brown, who’s in a neck-and-neck race in New Hampshire, because he’s fighting amnesty.
“Republicans should be up 10 to 15 points,” Ingraham said. “I think where Republicans aren’t up, we’ve had an Establishment that has refused to contribute significant money like we’re seeing with Scott Brown. They are not giving him the resources he needs. How dare they not! So he’s not getting the ad coverage he needs.”
Ingraham said she is hearing that Brown isn’t on television as much as incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).
“People up in New Hampshire are telling me they aren’t seeing any Scott Brown ads on television. Shaheen is pummeling Scott Brown in New Hampshire on television,” she said. “I need you to go to Scottbrown.com [and] support him–he’s standing up for you, your wages, and your ability to get a decent job. He’s standing against the GOP Establishment who’s telling him, ‘Shhh… Be careful how you talk about these issues. We’re going to (wink, wink) tacitly support that executive amnesty so Jeb’s okay with it.’ Scott Brown is running his own type of campaign.”
Ingraham called on the “Republican business types” to put their money where their mouths are and back Brown up.
“Where are all of these big Republican business types?” Ingraham asked. “Are they giving money to these campaigns? All of these high-paid political consultants–I’m so tired of these people–they give terrible advice, they make sure they get paid on time, but meanwhile, we have people begging for money in the final week of this election cycle. Why?”
