Mass. Senate rivals use similar playbook
Each paints other as an extremist
Sixteen days before the election, the Republican and Democratic candidates for US Senate warned voters of the race’s high stakes, as each portrayed the opposition as a standard-bearer for extremists. A new statewide TV ad launched by Democrat Elizabeth Warren on Sunday suggests a vote for incumbent US Senator Scott Brown is a vote for a Republican majority in the US Senate. Brown told supporters that it’s Warren whose views are extreme, while he represents “good moderates” trying to bring the country together.
