Close Senate Race in Massachusetts

Editor’s note: This from Greg Scandlen:

 Tuesday, January 19, 2010 

Scott Brown’s run for Ted Kennedy’s old seat in the United States Senate against state attorney general Martha Coakley. It is remarkable that Republican state senator Brown is within striking distance of taking this Senate seat. The consequences of a win here would be profound. It would be a massive repudiation of one-party rule in one of the bluest states in the country. It would remove the filibuster-proof majority the Democrats now have. It would build on the track record of Democratic defeats in Virginia and New Jersey. It could stop ObamaCare in the Senate. It would end the half-century legacy of Kennedy family domination of Massachusetts politics. It would undermine the re-election of Governor Deval Patrick and the entire Democrat establishment if they respond by delaying the certification of Brown. It would provide major momentum going in to the 2010 elections.

Now, I think we have learned over the past fifteen years that it is not enough to simply elect Republicans and trust them to pursue the right policies. Brown is not a perfect candidate, as the Libertarian statement below lays out. But there are no perfect candidates. As has been said before, “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” That vigilance can’t stop once the votes are counted. We have to keep pounding our friends as well as our opponents if we are going to restore liberty in America. In the meantime, I urge you to do what you can the help Brown get elected next Tuesday, January 19. Donate money Donate time if you are in or around Massachusetts Contact your friends and colleagues in Massachusetts to encourage them to vote and volunteer. Let’s use this election to build a tidal wave for November. — Greg Scandlen
