New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen survived a tough re-election challenge from Republican Scott Brown.

Shaheen, a personally popular former governor, focused on appealing to the state’s independent-minded voters by touting her moderate credentials and record as a bipartisan dealmaker. Brown painted her as an Obama loyalist and repeated the refrain that she has supported the president “99 percent of the time.”

Brown, who won a special election in 2010 to fill the seat of Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy, was labeled a political opportunist for moving north to resurrect his political career after his 2012 re-election loss in the Bay State. His entrance into the race gave the GOP a shot in a state where there was no other strong Republican challenger, but Brown struggled to gain traction until the final weeks of the campaign.
