UPDATE: The guys at Hillbuzz are officially obsessed with getting Scott Brown elected. They’re putting their money where their mouth is, by volunteering and phone banking for Scott. The fact that they refer to him as Sen. Hottie McAwesome just makes it even better. We officially dub them “Hillbuzz McAwesome.”
Some of you may be aware of the 2010 Senate and House races, where it is just within the realm of possibility that Republicans (hopefully conservative Republicans) could take back the House, and re-balance the Senate a bit more evenly. Hey, it’s possible.
But did you know that there’s a race coming up in January where we have a chance to make a great head-start in re-balancing the Senate? Yes, now that the “Lion of the Senate” has gone to meet his heavenly Maker, his Senate seat is up for grabs in a special election to be held on January 19, 2010. That’s less than three weeks away.
And girding his loins to sit in Merlin’s seat is Scott Brown, an actual Republican in Massachusetts. He’s up against MA Attorney General Martha Coakley, and give that this is Massachusetts, and that Scott is a Republican, it’s going to be a battle.
But you can help. Coakley has the might and money of the whole Democrat machine behind her. Mr. Brown has received a veritable pittance from national Republican committees.
GOP U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown has been all but abandoned by the same national Republican committees that pumped hundreds of thousands in campaign cash to former governors Mitt Romney and William Weld during their long-shot bids for U.S. Senate.
The snub has outraged local Republicans who say national conservatives should be jumping at the chance to nab the first open Senate seat in decades despite Brown’s tough odds in the Jan. 19 special election.
And you don’t have to be from Massachusetts to help. Similar to the “Ten Dollars for Tark” effort to help Danny Tarkanian unseat Harry Reid in Nevada, folks from all over the country can donate $10 (or more if you can) to help Scott Brown become the first Republican Senator in Massachusetts since Henry Cabot Lodge whoops!
