Olympia Snowe endorses Scott Brown as ‘breath of fresh air’

Senator Olympia Snowe, the Maine moderate who complained about excessive partisanship as she announced her retirement last week, today endorsed Senator Scott Brown for reelection and branded him an important independent voice for the US Senate.

“In an institution characterized by gridlock and partisanship, Scott Brown is a much-needed breath of fresh air,” Snowe said of her fellow Republican in a statement. “During the last two years, I have worked closely with Scott and have come to appreciate his independent spirit and bipartisan outlook.”
