Campaign website
Jim Rubens was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. Senate from New Hampshire.[1] Rubens lost to Scott Brown in the primary election on September 9, 2014.[2]


Mayday Super PAC

"Mayday," a super PAC that aims "to help elect lawmakers of both parties who support proposals to diminish the influence of big donors," announced that they would spend $4 million in campaign advertisements for New Hampshire's 2014 U.S. Senate race.[3] However, rather than supporting either party's front-runner, Mayday said that they would be supporting Republican candidate and former state Senator Jim Rubens in his primary against Scott Brown. In response to criticism for trying to fight big money's influence in politics by spending large amounts of money, co-founder Lawrence Lessig simply stated, "Embrace the irony."[3]
