Mass. Senate: Another Group Rallies Behind Brown

Posted January 8, 2010 at 6:37pm

On the heels of the American Future Fund’s Massachusetts Senate ad buy, another conservative advocacy group disclosed that it, too, will be purchasing airtime supporting state Sen. Scott Brown in the run up to the Jan. 19 special election.

The political action committee Our Country Deserves Better plans to begin airing an ad around the state “four or five days before election day” the PAC’s Communications Director Levi Russell told CQ-Roll Call.

Russell said the group, which made independent expenditures in behalf of conservative third-party candidate Doug Hoffman in New York’s 23rd district special election, has been monitoring the race and said it has become to look “winnable” for Brown, despite Massachusetts’ heavy Democratic lean.

“It’s such a critical seat,” Russell added, citing the opportunity to wrest away Democrats’ 60th Senate vote for the health care overhaul.
