NEW: Former Gov. Cellucci Endorses Brown in New Ad
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Cellucci, who served as governor from 1997-2001, as well as lieutenant governor under Gov. Bill Weld from 1991-1997 and as the U.S. Ambassador to Canada from 2001-2005, emphasizes Scott Brown's Bipartisanship and moderation as a reason for his endorsement.
The video features Gov. Cellucci speaking directly to the camera from his home in Hudson praising Brown's independence, saying he is, "someone who is moderate on social issues, conservative on fiscal issues." As governor, Paul Cellucci was renowned as a fiscal conservative and social moderate who effectively worked across the aisle and championed lower taxes on families.
Gov. Cellucci goes on to praise Brown's record of bipartisanship, saying, "I would say we need more people, desperately need more people, like Scott Brown... who will vote on the issue. He will do what's best for Massachusetts and for our country. And he will work with Republicans and Democrats to solve the big problems the United States faces."
Gov. Cellucci's endorsement comes on the heels of an analysis from Bloomberg Government of all party line votes in the 112th Congress showing that Scott Brown voted with Democrats 53% of the time and Republicans 47% of the time, further burnishing his record as one of the most independent and bipartisan senators in the country.
