WOLCOTT It happened in Massachusetts. Could it happen here?
In light of last week's election of Scott P. Brown, a little-known Republican state senator, to fill the U.S. Senate seat held for decades by the late Edward Kennedy, that's a question GOP leaders and political hopefuls in Connecticut want to answer in the affirmative.
No one has pondered the question as deeply as Brown's younger brother, Wolcott resident Bruce W. Browne, 43. Browne, who declined to say why he spells his last name differently, may try to follow his brother's lead.
Last Tuesday, Republicans and unaffiliated voters turned out in droves to support the elder Brown in his quest for a U.S. Senate seat in a state seen as an ironclad Democratic stronghold.
"It's a great win for the Republican Party, but it's everyone's seat," Browne said in an interview Tuesday. "It's the state of Massachusetts' seat."
Browne, who is seven years younger than the new senator, said his brother's strengths are his likeable personality and his down-to-earth character.
"It's all about talking to people and listening to people talk," Browne said. "That's exactly what my brother did. He went to every town in the state and said, 'How are things?'"
Politics aside, Browne said that if he runs he would run as an independent-minded candidate. He wouldn't support Republican policies solely for the sake of party unity, he said, sitting next to unaffiliated Mayor Thomas G. Dunn.
What are his credentials? Is he CONSERVATIVE? Why should he run: just becuase he’s “Scott Brown’s brother”??
Here's a pic.
Thanks—is there nothing that a Freeper can’t answer?
Not sexy like his big bro’, but looks like a nice enough guy.
He appears to have no credentials. He shouldn’t run if nepotistic name recognition is all he’s got. That sounds like the Kennedy fam. ;d
Thanks for the heads up on this one, Impy.
