The Boston Globe


Brown, Warren focus on Boston media market

Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren, his Democratic challenger, like to talk about how they crisscross the state to meet voters. But a ­Boston Globe analysis of both candidates’ public schedules shows they are spending much of their time in the Boston ­media market, appearing at made-for-television events ­designed to keep them in the news cycle.

The biggest losers in that calculation may be Western Massachusetts voters. Even as Governor Deval Patrick has showered the area with attention — during his campaigns and his two terms in the corner office — the candidates for ­Senate seldom visit. Tonight’s debate in Springfield will mark only the second visit to the state’s third-largest city by each candidate since July 4, according to the Globe tally, which ­analyzed their public schedules from that day forward.
