Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., released a new radio ad on Thursday, waxing nostalgic about Fenway Park. But he neglects to mention that he once tried to move the Red Sox from Boston to Foxborough.
"Remember what Fenway looked like the first time you walked into the ball park?" There was that emerald green grass, the white chalk lines perfectly laid out and that giant wall out in left field," says Brown in the ad. "You know, lots of things have changed over the years, but not Fenway Park."
"You know, there has been a lot of talk over the years about replacing the park, but that would have been a mistake," he says.
The Associated Press:
This isn't the first time Brown has released a Sox-themed radio ad -- in fact, he previously aired a spot called "Red Sox," during Spring Training.
As I've written before, showing off your Red Sox enthusiasm is an integral element of campaigning in Massachusetts.
