Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., likes to say he is bipartisan. So maybe it's no surprise that amid homilies to the postseason-bound Washington Nationals for emerging as D.C.'s last bipartisan affair, Brown, a vocal backer of Boston sports teams, is cheering on the Nats.
A day after he declined to say the Red Sox should keep their embattled manager Bobby Valentine (challenger Elizabeth Warren said Bobby V. should get another year) the embattled Senate candidate is raising money at Nationals Park, at $1,000-$2,500 a ticket, according to the Sunlight Foundation's "Political Party Time" page.
Fenway Park, outside which Brown's 2010 special-election opponent memorably declined to campaign, is empty Tuesday night, but the Sox are not far away in New York, where they have a chance to stop the hated Yankees from clinching the American League East.
A Brown spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a question about his fundraiser.
