    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is calling on Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to reimburse Massachusetts for the cost of mailing voter registration letters to welfare recipients. Brown said Friday the forms were sent to "aid" Warren's Senate campaign, urging her to pay back the nearly $276,000 Massachusetts spent on mailing. Warren's campaign called Brown's request a "ridiculous political stunt," saying the forms were sent out as an enforcement of a bipartisan law. Recently Brown faulted Massachusetts officials for sending the letters to nearly half a million welfare recipients as part of a court settlement. Warren's daughter sits on the board of...

An Obama campaign official confirmed to the Globe Wednesday that US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is ­being considered as a possible keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

    California's death penalty has been in limbo since 2006, when a federal judge stayed the execution of Michael Morales, who was sentenced to death for the brutal 1981 murder and rape of 17-year-old Terri Winchell. The judge was fearful lest the state's three-drug lethal injection protocol would cause Morales undue pain. Since then, a number of states have switched to a one-drug protocol. Why hasn't California? The answer could be that Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris don't want the death penalty to work. Brown and Harris are personally opposed to the death penalty, but when they campaigned...

Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan.

For months now, Scott Brown and his supporters have done anything and everything to tear down this campaign and avoid the real issues facing the people of Massachusetts. Massachusetts voters are smart -- and they've seen past the spin. A new PPP poll out today shows the race is still tied, 46-46. But we've got one more hurdle this week, and it's a big one.

They did this by handily passing an amendment to the state’s constitution that reads, in part, as follows: No federal, state, or local law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in...

    Massachusetts senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren described herself in law-school professional directories as a Native American minority from 1986 to 1995. The white Democratic candidate has so far offered no evidence that she is, in fact, part Native American, suggesting that she may have falsified that ethnic credential to advance her academic career in the early affirmative-action era. But “it is true,” a Warren spokeswoman told The Daily Caller on Monday, “and we’re working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease you.” Another Warren spokeswoman shot back at the campaign of incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown, whom Warren is...

    US Senator Scott Brown is pressuring his reelection rival Elizabeth Warren to release six years worth of her tax returns, but his strategy could have some unintended consequences: drawing more attention to his fellow Massachusetts Republican, Mitt Romney. The presumptive GOP presidential nominee so far has refused to divulge years of his tax returns, saying that one year – along with promises to release this year’s return when it is complete, sometime before this fall’s general election – should suffice. But Brown, whose top political advisers are the same as Romney’s, is making the exact opposite argument. His campaign argues...

  • Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts! (Dem Hypocrite Alert)

    We just finished our first quarter fundraising report, and we want to share our good news with you first. Our campaign raised $6.9 million from January through March. That's more than double the amount raised by our opponent, incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown. Scott Brown still has $4 million more in the bank than we do, and there's a lot of work ahead to do to close the gap. But this proves we're building something special. I want to share a few statistics that make me really proud: Elizabeth outraised Scott Brown right here in Massachusetts. More than 30,000 men...

    Washington (CNN) – South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Thursday the leading Republican presidential candidate was carrying a "golden bullet" to connect with women voters. Speaking on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," the Palmetto State Republican said Mitt Romney's wife Ann, along with the candidate himself, would need to answer women with concerns about his platform. Polls released in the past week show Romney trailing President Barack Obama by a large margin among female voters. "If Gov. Romney has not related to women, he needs to get out there and talk about the issues they care about," Haley...

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, in a fight for his political survival and facing Democratic charges he’s waging war on women, plans to blunt the gender assault this week by crossing party lines to lend his high-profile support to a controversial domestic violence bill. The Bay State’s sole Republican in Congress tells the Herald that in a contest against likely Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, he can show he’s been there for women, with a compelling personal story to back him up.

    WASHINGTON _ The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project. Tuesday's vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably.
