September 28, 2011
Splitting pizza with former Democratic state Senate president Robert Travaglini, Brown chatted constituent issues with locals, part of a Travaglini-led day tour of this neighborhood, which has supported the occasional Republicans. Aged pictures of 1980 Olympic hockey gold medalist Mike Eruzione and long-retired boxers looked down. Brown, in a nod to the GOP's significant registration disadvantage in Massachusetts, told the small lunchtime gathering that, if there were "hardcore, crazy Democrats" in the room, they could go home with one of the "I'm a Scott Brown Democrat" bumper stickers he brandished. "The walls are the same since 1950," said Travaglini, who said the tour was "not an endorsement," but instead a show of respect and friendship rooted in their time together as state senators. Brown spoke sparingly about politics, and called for Massachusetts to access the Obama administration's Secure Communities enforcement program for illegal immigrants. He also repeated his well-worn complaint about the lack of bipartisanship in Washington. Brown also suggested that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's entrance into the Republican presidential primary could benefit Brown's longtime ally, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, by offering voters a clear choice. "Think it's good he's in the race, because it draws such a sharp contrast between Mitt and him," Brown said, between bites of cheese pizza. "He hasn't done well the last two debates," Brown said of Perry.
