For Brown, campaign an all-out family affair
Senator’s wife and daughters now helping to soften image of the man with the truck
Two-and-a-half years ago, when Scott Brown was mounting a special election bid that would shock the political world, his daughters were only an occasional presence and his wife, a TV journalist, was deliberately absent. Today, in a longer campaign, his job at stake, they are in full view, helping the candidate who defined himself as the guy in the barn jacket (“I’m Scott Brown, I’m from Wrentham, I drive a truck”) project a broader image: Scott Brown, dedicated husband and family man.
