HUDSON, N.H. (AP) - Stumping for Scott Brown in New Hampshire, Republican Mitt Romney says there's a "big ravine" between how U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen acts at home and how she acts in Washington.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential nominee, returned to Gilchrist Metal Fabricating on Wednesday with Brown, a former Massachusetts senator now challenging Shaheen in New Hampshire.

In 2012, the company's owner was featured in one of Romney's ads criticizing President Barack Obama. Romney now says voters should reject the president's policies by ousting Shaheen.

Gilchrist, who has acknowledged getting a federal business loan, says his company is struggling with high energy prices and the economic uncertainty created by Obama's health care law.

Romney won New Hampshire's 2012 presidential primary, but the state favored Obama in the general election.
