Conservatives Work Tax Angle in NH

Conservative groups are betting they can bring down New Hampshire Democratic Senate candidate Jeanne Shaheen by making her name synonymous with taxes.

There was the Chamber of Commerce ad calling the former governor a "taxing machine." Then came the Americans for Job Security ad — all about taxes.

And now Club for Growth has an ad running this message: "As governor, Shaheen enacted the first statewide property tax, proposed the first-ever sales tax, said she would sign the first state income tax."

Talk about staying on message.
