In an interview with the Lowell Sun, Scott Brown said people should vote for him because he has a better relationship with John Boehner than Elizabeth Warren would. He’s still Mr. Bipartisan and all, but he can get Lowell some new bridges, etc., because they’re both Republicans. Except Scott’s an independent. When he’s not a Republican. Or something.
Brown also says he’s going to win Lowell by more this time than in 2010. We’ll see about that. He also claims his support is “strongest” in at least half the state, including the Cape (where he actually did win in 2010) and Islands (where he lost, badly in the case of MV), Springfield (he lost 61-37), Fall River (he lost 57-41), New Bedford (he lost 59-39). He hopes to win or tie in the North End, South Boston, East Boston, and the heretofore nonexistent “West Boston.”
Let’s GOTV and make sure Scott doesn’t come close to winning in any of these places.
One nugget: Brown says he’s telling all the Obama supporters who are dying to vote for him, but can’t bear to cross party lines, to “just leave [the Senate race] blank” on their ballots.
Oh, and Scott would absolutely love to see John Kerry as Secretary of State in January. That would mean another special election for Scott to run in after he loses this year.
