Scott Brown declined bigger GOP convention role

TAMPA - Senator Scott Brown said today he was asked to play a bigger role at the Republican National Convention but limited his attendance to a single day because of scheduling demands, not concern about fallout for his reelection campaign.

“Obviously, me being here is important in that, you know, it shows that someone who’s a pro-choice moderate Republican is here as part of the big tent that we have, and should have, and will continue to have with my involvement here,” he said. “And while I don’t agree with everything in the platform and/or with Governor Romney, I have a lot of respect for him and vice versa.”
