Not mentioned in the story. Bruce owns a local alarm company, nice family, boy scout troop leader.
If a normal guy like this gets in the race vs. a polished slimy attorney general (Blumenthal aka “BlumenDodd”) it could be a very interesting race.
“The machine” putting out attack ads against regular guys would look bad.
I would love to see professional politicians ousted by regular, normal citizens.
Is a solid Republican candidate good? Yes.
Is the habit of looking for family members of winners to run for other offices good? No.
They need to broaden the field to include as many realistic and reliable Republican candidates as possible. Running over to the nearest family members of candidates and office holders smacks of wanting to create dynasties. A “Kennedy Seat” should not seem to be replaced by a Republican dynasty.
Good for Mr. Brown winning the Senate Seat. But it should prevent anyone in his family from being considered.
Sounds like a good guy. I would rather have a family man, alarm company owner and boy scout leader then professional politicials we have.
