Ahead of Thursday's debate in the tight Massachusetts Senate race, both Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren are working to lower expectations.
Brown also managed to get a few references to "Harvard" in discussing how he's the debate underdog, per the Boston Globe:
Meanwhile, last week Warren told the Boston Herald she was nervous about the upcoming debates. "You make me nervous every time you ask me," Warren said. "Yes, of course, I'm nervous." She called Brown a "very effective" debater based on his face off with Martha Coakley before his victory in the 2010 special election.
The Thursday debate marks the first of four slated for the general election.
