Republican Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) spent much of Monday night’s Massachusetts Senate debate – the second of four against challenger Elizabeth Warren – stressing his independent credentials and running away from his congressional bosses. Asked by debate moderator David Gregory if he would vote for Senator Mitch McConnnell (R-KY) to be majority leader in January if elected to a full term, Brown took a pass.
“I’ve already let it be very clearly known to Mitch McConnell that I’m completely disgusted as to what’s going on down there,” Brown said. “He has a lot of work to do to earn my vote because I don’t work for him or Harry Reid. That’s the beauty of being independent.”
