LOWELL -- From dueling endorsements from local politicians to same-day visits to television advertisements, Lowell has been a central battleground for U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in their Senate race, but their biggest Lowell duel to date will come Monday night.
The two candidates, who are very close in the polls, are set to face off for an hour before 4,500 people at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell in their second head-to-head clash of the race. Another 13,000-plus people interested in attending had to be turned away.
Senator Scott Brown has made extraordinary efforts to differentiate himself from the national Republican Party in his tough reelection bid — appearing with President Obama in his campaign commercials, calling himself an independent voice on the...
Elizabeth Warren's ancestry is not germane to her candidacy or the election, says WBUR political commentator Dan Payne. Ultimately a Senate race this big will be decided on more weighty matters than bloodlines.
BOSTON - The notorious "birther" movement, as it has come to be known, is a right-wing fringe effort that has tried to convince the American electorate that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and that his birth certificate is a forgery. The "birther" movement has not only been debunked, but has been roundly dismissed for its conspiracy theory-style lunacy.
Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and his campaign have been criticized for attacking his opponent Elizabeth Warren and her claims that she is of Native American descent. Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests talk about controversy and what it means for the national dialogue on race.
In the news this week, two videos emerged showing Sen. Scott Brown supporters and staff shouting war whoops and performing tomahawk chops in an apparent reference to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage.
Finally, Brown’s injection of race into this race is as obvious, blatant, and mean-spirited as anything I’ve seen come out of Mississippi or Louisiana over the last 50 years. He is telling the “low information” white voter in Massachusetts that Warren has not only used the dreaded “affirmative action” card to get into Harvard and other plum normally white-reserved stations in life. But she has used it “illegally” because she really is not red, she’s white. Just look at her.
Obstruction was the centerpiece of Republican strategy since the day Scott Brown was elected, and it would work so long as Republican Scott Brown played along. Republicans #1 goal was to make Obama a one-term president, not economic recovery.
Elizabeth Warren appears to be inching ahead of Senator Scott Brown in the highly competitive race for Senate, as Massachusetts Democrats energized by the presidential race begin to fall in line behind her, according to a new Globe poll.
It would be a huge mistake to buy into Scott Brown's image as an independent voice in the Senate. As Elizabeth Warren rightly pointed out in their first debate, his 2010 vote against former Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court was Republican party line all the way. He feigned even-handedness, calling her "brilliant," but clearly he never intended to give her an unbiased, "independent" assessment — only the pretense of one.
Real Independents run for office without the backing of either major party and thus are free to vote according to their own best judgment. Tellingly, the Senate's only two real Independents, Joe Liebermann and Bernie Sanders voted to confirm Kagan, as did Maine's authentically independent-minded Republican Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins. Pretend independent Scott Brown just fell into line behind his boss, Mitch McConnel, in rejecting his eminently qualified fellow Bay Stater.
Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) has focused his reelection campaign’s attention on the self-proclaimed Native American heritage of his Democratic challenger, Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Warren. Years ago, Warren listed herself as a Native American in professional directories commonly used by recruiters.
Melissa Harris-Perry responds to a video depicting staffers of Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown making offensive actions against Native Americans. Kevin Gover, director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian joins to react.
Republican Scott Brown likes to tout himself as bipartisan but in an out-of-state fundraising email he calls his race for re-election "THE battleground for the United States Senate" and "the only sure hedge to a potential second term for President Obama"
Bipartisan? No! And his voting bears that out. On key votes, he joined Republicans to block bill 76% of the time.
Must we have racism plus more lies mixed in our Senate race? Have you seen the video about the protestors at Elizabeth Warren’s rally? It features Scott Brown’s senior staffers — such as Brad Garrett, who works for the Massachusetts Republican Party, and Jack Richard, a constituent services lawyer in Brown’s US Senate office, plus Greg Casey, Brown’s deputy chief of staff, and Jerry McDermott, a former Boston city councilor who serves as Brown’s state director — jumping up and down like idiots, insulting Indians.
