This is good news from the Peoples republic of Massachusetts. Go Scott…although it would be nice if he was an actual conservative…… oh well.
This is definitely good news. Brown is the most conservative senator that we can get from Massachusetts and is worthy of our support. His ACU rating for 2010 was 74, which places him well to the right of other Northeastern GOP senators such as Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins. Another reason to support him is because of his opponent. Elizabeth Warren is one Democrat that we would see on TV and in the news almost daily if she is elected, spewing her far left hatred of all that is good about this country. Keeping that woman as far away from the U.S. Senate as possible is in the country’s best interest, not just the GOP’s.
The only caveat that I would insert here is that we cannot have a repeat of 2006 where the GOP spent money trying to re-elect Lincoln Chafee instead of trying to help other senators in similar situations with more reliable conservative voting records (Talent, Burns, Allen). If money becomes an issue, you have to help the most reliable team members who have the best chance to win. Ultimately, I have no problem with Brown’s voting record or middle of the road approach because this is arguably the most liberal state in the nation, and he has to respect that to a considerable degree as a senator. It sure as heck beats the alternative (Warren).
Right on..we need to make sure we get you for the senate count. We can deal with your RINO leanings later. Eventually, we will scare you out like Olympia Snow (job).

H. Jackson Brown, Jr. quotes
It’s great that he is up by 10 for a couple of reasons. First the Dem will close as the year moves on and he’ll need the cushion to win. Second to close that gap the Dems will spend tens of millions of dollars in a state that would have been a walk.
I hope Brown prevails, because he really is the best we can do there, but realistically even up 10 today he is the underdog.
I love big gov’t R’s!
Give the seat back to the Dems. Focus on red states like MT, MO, NE, ND…
MITT AND BROWN WILL BOTH WIN
OK, he’s not really that conservative, if at all.
He’s still a helluva lot better than the communist shrew he’s running against.
Ignore this race completely. Brown’s a RINO hack, and he’s being inundated with Goldman Sachs money. It’s a GS blizzard, and it’s burying his truck. He’s practically baling cash right now. He’s burning it in his fireplace to heat his house.
If Goldman Sachs is paying for this guy’s candidacy, they can go ahead and pay for ALL of it. Give this guy nothing. And give that Thompson hack in WI nothing. If we manage to raise up a conservative to challenge Stabenow in Michigan, THAT’S a race that needs conservative support.
Stabenow is one attractive woman. Not quite as sexy as Barbara Mikulski or Claire McCaskill though.
