Hopefully Scott Brown wasn’t in the room for this one.

In a video obtained by In the Loop, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kent.) suggests one way for Republicans to win New Hampshire is “building a fence between here and Massachusetts.”

Speaking at a private rally and fundraiser in Dover, N.H. Friday while in town for the conservatives’ Freedom Summit, Paul told his

supporters that Republicans need to win elections in states they normally don’t do well in — “New Hampshire is one of them, so I’m expecting you guys to do a better job,” he said to laughter.

One idea? “Someone told me that New Hampshire was building a fence between here and Massachusetts,” Paul said to more applause. “Fortunately there’s no media here, right?”

It was just 24 hours prior that Brown crossed that border to make his Massachusetts senator-turned-New Hampshire politician run for the Senate official.
