I wrote off Brown’s chances for reelection the day he was elected in January 2010. I knew he would not ever get reelected. And nothing has changed about that.
But that is OK. He gave us the gift of breaking the 60 seat Senate supermajority for the year 2010, and as a bonus he kept a Democrat out of the seat for 2011 and 2012. From a state like Massachusetts, you have to accept the small gifts you receive from the voters. But we knew it would not last long. We may get another GOP senator in Massachusetts in another 20 years if we are lucky, but not this year.
The good news is there are several others states that look good for pick-ups this year, and I see a GOP majority as a result. We should ignore the liberal media’s obsession with the Massachusetts race and concentrate on the races that we can win.
Snowe will most likely give up her seat to Angus King, an “independent” who will be sure to caucus with the Dems.
