Scott Brown-Tea Party Relationship Sends Mixed Signals

The latest in the tea party-Scott Brown saga: Powerhouse PAC Tea Party Express released a statement today lashing out at Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass.—a potential 2012 threat to Republican Massachusetts Sen. Brown—for defending union protests Tuesday. Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer accused Capuano of “calling for bloodshed”:

Democrat Congressman Michael Capuano (who is considering a run against Republican Senator Scott Brown) whipped up a crowd of union hacks into a frenzy yesterday declaring: “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

If Tea Party Express is racing to rebuke Brown’s potential opponent now, will it do the same in the Republican primary? While the group has promised challenges to RINOs in states like Indiana and Maine, its leaders have remained curiously ambivalent toward moderate conservative Brown.

 

Adding to the head-scratcher: Brown publicly disclaimed the tea party mantle Tuesday.
