Scott Brown still smarting from his co-sponsoring of the failed Blunt Amendment, which would have allowed employers to determine contraceptive and other health insurance coverage has been trying to dig himself out of the mess he created.
Brown has been on a full court press over the past week to try to win back supporters. Once such event last week involved Olympia Snowe and his wife Gail Huff.
Brown was introduced at the press conference by his wife, former Boston television reporter Gail Huff.
Huff wasn’t actively involved in the campaign that led to Brown’s 2010 special election win to the seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy, but said she’s able now to be more involved since she’s no longer a reporter in Boston.
Brown said he’s used to being surrounded by “strong willed women”
Huff continued or jumped in to prevent Brown from sticking his foot in his mouth, since I’m not sure where he was going with the “strong willed women” comment, that in their family, the couple and their daughters have open discussions.
When pressed by reporters to actually provide an example rather than generic statements, the only thing that Scott Brown could come up with on the influence of women in his life was “how to cook”.
Brown declined to be more specific about the family discussions, but when a reporter asked Huff to name an issue that she and the couple’s daughter have educated Brown on, Brown chimed in and said “how to cook.”
