The Salem News Endorses Brown

When I read this I figured it was the only conservative paper in Massachusetts but this paper endorsed Barack Obama. In this particular instance they are going with Brown because the paper believes he will be the best candidate to stop the bleeding

There’s a need to restore balance to the debate in Washington and bring a contrarian voice to the all-Democratic Massachusetts delegation. Voters can achieve that by electing Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate Tuesday.

Brown, however, would be much more than a “no” vote in the Senate.

A former selectman, state representative and now state senator from Wrentham with a 30-year record of military service, Brown has a keen understanding of the unique challenges facing Massachusetts. His time spent as a Bay State Republican has taught him how to work across the aisle to get things done (a trait for which the late Ted Kennedy was justly praised). That experience would help him become an effective voice for moderation and bipartisanship within the halls of the Capitol.

Brown is the kind of Republican — fiscally conservative, but middle-of-the-road on social issues in the Ed Brooke/Bill Weld mold — that Massachusetts voters have endorsed in the past with good results. The Salem News

The polls have swung in his favor and Coakley’s campaign looks like its wheels are falling off. The people of Massachusetts have had enough and this Tuesday will prove to be very interesting indeed.

Coakley is in such bad shape that Barack Obama is going to go to the state to stump for her. If all goes well this will work out as well as it did in New Jersey and Virginia. The Democrats are desperate so they are sending out the union thugs and the thug in chief to help their lowly candidate.

The Democrats are also in spin mode. The internal feeling is that the bottom has fallen out of the Coakley campaign and operatives are already working on distancing Obama from the impending doom like they did with Deeds in Virginia. The plan is to claim that Coakley ran a poor campaign (which looks to be true) and then deflect blame from Obama should she lose.

Of course, if she wins they will claim he saved the day.

    Since the Boston Globe will not even acknowledge Brown, I am glad at least one paper is doing it’s job.
