While sitting in a theater getting ready to watch the movie 42, depicting the legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson's rookie season in Major League baseball, former US Senator Scott Brown walked in and took a seat in the back row.
Moments later, his wife Gail Huff walks in with items from the concession stand. Their vacation home is in Rye, NH. So the question of Brown's chances comes to mind. Senator Jeanne Shaheen's staff is elated to face an out of state challenger just off the heels of a major defeat by Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Could a former Senator from the state down south come to New Hampshire and beat a popular former NH Governor with lifelong ties in the area? An impeccable taste in movies is a great start for any successful challenger. 42 was one of the few movies where it received a great applause by a packed audience at the end.
This would be a state where he has to get out and mingle with voters to which he has a great track record of doing so during his first campaign; a movie theater is a great start.
Unfortunately Senator Shaheen is a fighter as well. She knows when to get tough just as Senator Warren did. In a state where the stakes would be high Brown's team can't commit unforced errors as it did in his recent race. All in all he has a great face and he comes from working class roots. Let's see where that takes him if he jumps in the '14 race.
