As a first-time candidate, you can imagine how thrilled I was to see today’s CNN article regarding Scott’s efforts to help out with campaigns here in MA:
“Scott Brown brings crowds, cash for GOP hopefuls” – By Kristi Keck, CNN
The people of my district (7th Plymouth – Abington, Whitman & East Bridgewater) felt very strongly about electing Scott to the US Senate (combined 70/30 on Jan. 11) and we were able to rally a lot of support behind him leading up to the Special Election.
But as we all know, it was Scott’s efforts that made him a winner that day. The stories of his time spent in our towns is, I’m positive, echoed across the Commonwealth so I won’t bog this post down with yet another campaign tale. Suffice to say that he worked tirelessly and set the bar for all of us who are running – for that I am supremely grateful. There’s a quote – “The speed of the pack is determined by the pace of the leader.”
I look at Scott’s effort as the benchmark for what I have to do in this race and as I meet fellow Republican candidates for all offices, I sense that the same determination that permeated State Senator Brown has rubbed off on them, as well.
So here I stand, humbled by the energy and effort it took for US Senator Brown to pave a path for the rest of us and I thank him for showing us (and the Country) the way. To come back onto the campaign trail and continue the fight to bring accountability and common sense to the Commonwealth is more that I could have asked and when all is said and done, I think we will owe Scott yet another debt of gratitude.
I have had the great fortune to have been raised in the greatest nation on earth, and I will do all I can to succeed – for the future of my family, my towns and my state. Thank you to all who have contributed to the campaign I’ve been lucky to be in and let’s get ready for November… There’s still a lot of work to be done. Right, Scott?
