Councilor Lukes Endorses Brown; Warren Never Asked for Her Vote

Monday, April 30, 2012

 

Senator Brown listens on as Councilor Lukes endorsed him.

Former Worcester Mayor and City Councilor Konnie Lukes (D) crossed party lines and endorsed Republican US Senator Scott Brown today. Councilor Lukes said she didn't endorse Brown when he first ran for US Senate, but his track record in Congress changed her mind this time. Lukes told GoLocalWorcester, "I have taken a hard look at both candidates. I rarely endorse candiates. But as a freshmen Senator he has been able to achieve a lot and work with both parties."

Councilor Lukes said Elizabeth Warren didn't ask her for her endorsement. However, she said that didn't impact her decision to support Brown.

Today's event was supposed to take place at City Hall, but there were protesters staged out front so the Brown camp changed locations to the Court House Cafe instead. Senator Brown said, "We are much happier at this family owned establishment."

After thanking Councilor Lukes for her endorsement, Senator Brown said, " We are Americans first. You sent me to Washington to do a job, be an independent voice and actually read bills. I put Massachusetts interests first and focus on what matters most."

Senator Brown spoke to how important Worcester is to his re-election considering he announced that he was running for re-election at Mechanics Hall a few months ago. Senator Brown said, "There's life after 128 and 495."
