Brown Touts Moderate Voting Record

In a tough race against Elizabeth Warren, Scott Brown seemed confident in voters’ desire for moderation. The Massachusetts senator said that his moderate record in the Senate, citing his work on the recent jobs and insider trading bills, is a rarity in Washington these days.

“There are more independents now than there are Democrats and Republicans together,” Brown said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “And the fact that I'm the secondmost bipartisan senator in the United States Senate, and the only parts of the jobs packages of the president that have passed is the ones I was involved in.”

He said that, by voting with the Republican Party only 54 percent of the time, he’s more of a problem-solver. An overwhelming Democratic majority, he said, leads to corruption.

 

“Every day I got up I had to work with Democrats,” he said. “When I go down to Washington, working with a Democrat is no big deal. But my colleagues look at me and say, ‘What are you doing?’ And I say, ‘I'm problem-solving.’”
