NEW: Brown Hits Back with Endorsement from Former Dem Mayor of Lowell

Friday, September 14, 2012


Republican Senator Scott Brown announced another addition to his "Democrats for Brown" coaltion on Friday, former Democratic Mayor and current Lowell City Council, Rita Mercier.

Mercier has sat on the City Council since 1996, and she was the third woman ever to hold the office of Mayor in the City of Lowell when she took on the role back in 2002. 

Mercier joins the likes of former Democratic mayors Konnie Lukes of Worcester, Ray Flynn of Boston and Charles Ryan of Springfield in crossing the aisle to support the Republican Seantor this November.

Brown has now picked up support from former Democratic mayors in the Commonwealth's four largest cities.

Scott Brown's new ad on Friday touts the candidate's "pro-choice" values and support for equal pay, despite the fact that Brown has voted in favor of anti-birth control legislation and against the Paycheck Fairness Act. The ad is misleading. Scott Brown voted with his GOP colleagues to block the Paycheck Fairness Act in June. He supported the controversial Blunt amendment, which would allow any employer to deny contraception coverage its to workers, and he was recently endorsed by Massachusetts Citizens for Life. According to Huffington Post, Scott has been "crystal clear" he will vote against the Democrats' plan to preserve the Bush-era tax cuts just on income under $250,00o Brown has insisted he would vote only for extending the Bush tax cuts in their entirety, including those for the 2 percent of Americans earning more than $250,000. That is part of his voting record that he keeps very quiet . It is up to us--and to Elizabeth Warren in her ads--to get out the truth on Scott’s voting record. He won’t.
