  •  I wonder how many MA AFL-CIO members... (4+ / 0-)

    ...are aware that Brown has lost their Organization's endorsement.

    And why.

    As I have suggested numerous times, Warren just needs a relative handful of those currently intending to vote "Obama-Brown" to cause the entire Brown candidacy to implode. He has no other "reserve bloc" of voters he can "activate" to replace ANY that he loses.

    •  They probably can't say this on radio or TV (1+ / 0-)

      because of the "no negative ads" agreement.  Perhaps that agreement doesn't extend to the phone banking that the unions do.

      It will not be possible to save Medicare by destroying it.

    •  I think Warren is in some trouble (0+ / 0-)

      in this race.  I live in Southern NH, most of my family is in MA.  Her campaign is not defining Brown as the typical national Republican that will do whatever leadership tells him.  They are letting him define himself as this truck driving regular guy who vaguely independent and doesn’t really like Washington but never really says what he doesn’t like.  His “from the road” report and all that.  It’s working, I wish they would hit him harder, hang McConnel, his votes and the Republican platform around his neck.  I just feel they have waited to long and the independent voter already thinks they know who Scott Brown is.  

      •  You're right - she's in big trouble. (4+ / 0-)

        Brown's campaign is hitting the right chords to keep the independent and the "why can't they find a way to work together" Democratic Party contingent. Brown's talking about fishing regulations in Gloucester.

        Meanwhile Warren is focusing on national not MA-centric issues. There are less than 2 months to go -- she needs to draw some DEEP, SHARP differences with Brown, and soon. And she needs to do that by going after Brown directly, in connection with the broader GOP, and in a more effective manner than she has thus far.
