A Republican U.S. Senate candidate in New Hampshire is making the immigration debate a central issue of the campaign, far from Mexican border.
Bill Binnie is a naturalized citizen who immigrated legally to the U.S. with his parents from Scotland when he was 5 years old.
The 52-year-old multimillionaire businessman has been running a television ad calling for English to be the country's official language.
The ad has moved fighting illegal immigration, an issue that plays well with Republicans, to the center of the campaign.
Binnie's move is risky, because it has drawn attention to his opposition to Arizona's controversial anti-illegal immigration law, which many Republicans and his three main rivals support.
