The Warren Wreck
Frustrated by Elizabeth Warren’s demeanor on the campaign trail and impressed by Sen. Scott Brown’s record of bipartisanship in the Senate, a number of centrist Democrats are endorsing the Republican senator in his bid against the one-time Harvard professor.
Former Democratic Boston mayor Ray Flynn officially endorsed Brown Monday afternoon at Castle Island in South Boston.
Flynn, who also served as Bill Clinton’s ambassador to the Vatican, previously said that Brown “adds a dimension to what is necessary, needed in the U.S. Senate. A bipartisan voice, one that is going to place the interests of all the people, not just Republicans, in center.”
Flynn was not the only Massachusetts Democrat to endorse Brown Monday.
Democratic Worcester, Mass. City Councilor and former mayor Konnie Lukes endorsed Brown Monday afternoon at Worcester City Hall, two hours after Flynn offered his endorsement.
Lukes cited the senator’s bipartisan credentials as the main factor behind her endorsement in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon.
“Let’s face it—the commonwealth of Massachusetts is a one-party state,” Lukes said. “No party is sacred. If either party gains a disproportionate share of power, mischief results. Then mischief gets followed by gridlock, and then we’re all in danger. We’ve already reached that point in Massachusetts, and we’re getting there in Washington
