Brown works to overcome residency questions in NH

By

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Scott Brown is working to convince New Hampshire voters he is one of them.

The former Massachusetts senator became a registered voter in the state 13 weeks ago. Now he's touring New Hampshire's diners, businesses and hospitals to help promote his nascent bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.

No one has served two states in the U.S. Senate in more than two centuries.

Brown spent the first year and a half of his life living in New Hampshire before moving to Massachusetts. He and his wife moved to their modest seacoast New Hampshire vacation home full-time in late December.

There are early signs that the state's famously feisty voters may be reluctant to embrace the recent Republican transplant.
