Scott Brown paints win as key for GOP
Pitch to non-Mass. Republicans stresses control of Senate, not bipartisanship
Senator Scott Brown has made extraordinary efforts to differentiate himself from the national Republican Party in his tough reelection bid — appearing with President Obama in his campaign commercials, calling himself an independent voice on the trail, and chastising his opponent, Elizabeth Warren, for her efforts to nationalize the race. But Brown’s fund-raising on the national level, where money is crucial and anger at Democrats is high, can strike a far different tone.
