Scott Brown courts Boston’s black voters

Senator hopes even a small gain can make a difference in close reelection campaign

Two new billboards, standing across from a Nation of Islam mosque and over a hair salon in Roxbury, show Senator Scott Brown shaking hands with President Obama. Underneath the billboards, the state Republican Party has opened an office with workers wearing “Obama supporters for Brown” T-shirts.

In the last week, the senator has met with black pastors in Boston, visited a black church in Dorchester, and called into a black pastor’s ­radio show in Springfield.
