Dem State Rep. Looking At Possible Scott Brown Challenge

Even with his relatively short political career, Conroy's years in elected office would qualify him as the most senior officeholder in the current field. Conroy unseated a Republican in 2006 to capture the suburban seat, one of the state's most affluent. He holds an undergraduate degree from Yale and graduate degrees from Johns Hopkins and Boston University. Still, a Conroy candidacy would be met with some incredulity in Bay State political circles. He comes from a politically weak part of the state and has yet to make inroads among Democratic powerbrokers. Democrats on Monday drilled Brown for saying he would likely vote for the House-passed budget, which has turned into a hobbyhorse for Democrats, who have depicted the Medicare restructuring as an end to the Great Society program. Playing off former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's denouncement of the House plan as "radical," the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee accused Brown making Gingrich look like a moderate by comparison.
