Daily Kos :: Scott Brown plays the regular guy again while trolling for votes in Massachusetts
Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) knows what cohort of voters he has to win to be reelected in November: white, blue collar Democratic and independent men, and he's focusing all his efforts there. That's how he undercuts all of the actual work Elizabeth Warren has done to champion working families, and brand her as an elitist. So that's how you get this kind of performance:
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- On opening day of Little League season, Republican Sen. Scott Brown helps out a coach by picking up an equipment bag and carrying it to a ball field here in this town 20 miles west of Boston. The ball-capped kids sitting on the benches may not recognize the lawmaker, wearing a blue dress shirt and a Red Sox tie with tiny blue B's on itóbut many of their parents do.
Brown is running a locally focused campaign, hoping that working-class and conservative Democrats and the growing number of independents in the Bay State see him . . . as an everyman who can legislate in Washington but come home to catch a game and throw back a cold one.
