But you knew that, already, right? Because I reported as much on December 30, when everyone else was saying that the Republican party was not giving him adequate support. Hey, I heard it from the horse’s mouth.
FYI: I listened in on a conference call with Brown, yesterday, and was surprised to learn that those rumors about the GOP leaving him in the cold were greatly exaggerated. In fact, “Don’t believe everything you read” is a direct quote from Brown. He wanted us to know that the GOP wasn’t stiffing him. But he is being greatly outspent by his well connected opponent, MA Atty Gen Martha Coakley, who has special interest, and union $$$ backing her.
Now Ed Morressey is reporting:
NRSC, RNC quietly moved money into Massachusetts last two weeks
This was a brilliant move by both the NRSC and the RNC. They didn’t fall into a Democratic trap by trumpeting their involvement with Brown, who wanted to show as much independence as possible. Coakley and Obama spent Sunday making Brown look like a tool of the Tea Party movement and the GOP national machine, but it was Coakley getting bailed out by Democratic heavyweights from outside Massachusetts.
Incidentally, in that post, I also linked to that hunky Cosmo spread of Brown, which I found whilst googling, the first blogger to notice it, (it was from a Sept. issue), not that I got any hat tips out of the deal. Hmmmph.
