Brown hopes issues give him an opening - The Boston Globe:
"To win statewide, however, the GOP generally needs to capture the votes of more than two-thirds of independents, who constitute 51 percent of the Bay State electorate. The Republican will also need to peel off some conservative and moderate Democrats, particularly in blue-collar areas where turnout was unusually light in the Democratic primary, which featured four candidates."Thanks Brian C. Mooney for writing an article that has some facts in it and not framing the Massachusetts Sante race as a horserace. Thanks too for not ignoring Joseph L. Kennedy, "a Libertarian running as an independent, who is not related to the late senator."
