Senate hopeful Brown: Health law costs liberty

Posted: Updated:

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — The speculation is over and the campaign has begun for Republican Scott Brown, the former Massachusetts senator who is hoping to return to Washington by way of New Hampshire.

Brown formally announced his campaign Thursday in Portsmouth, where he lived as a baby before moving to Massachusetts.

He accused Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen of being a rubber stamp for President Barack Obama, and criticized her support for the federal health care overhaul law. Tweaking New Hampshire's "Live Free or Die" motto, Brown said the law forces people to make a choice "live free or log on," and said the worst is yet to come.

Brown, who moved to New Hampshire in December, faces several other Republican primary opponents in the September primary.
