The Boston Herald urges Massachusetts taxpayers to vote for hope and change:
Sometimes one vote can make a difference – especially if it’s one vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
If you love what’s going on in Washington, well, then by all means vote for Martha Coakley. She’s a perfectly nice person, and she won’t make a dime’s worth of difference in the balance of power in Washington.
But if you’re not happy with the status quo, if you think the way business is being conducted on Capitol Hill today is a disgrace and an affront to taxpayers, then you probably agree it’s time for a change.
Scott Brown can single-handedly deliver on that kind of change and the Herald is pleased to endorse his candidacy in the race for U.S. Senate.
Brown talks about being the “41st senator,” adding to Republican ranks and depriving Democrats of the “supermajority” which has allowed them to ride roughshod over the nation’s agenda. But he would go to Washington as his own man – and as ours, beholden to no one, except Massachusetts voters.
C-SPAN will air the final debate between Coakley and Brown tonight at 7pm Eastern. Go here.
As @golfer6266 tweets: “Scott Brown makes a point of it not being Ted Kennedy’s seat but the People of Massachusetts’ seat.”
Darn, no reverse Midas touch: “Obama has no plans to campaign for Coakley.”
Update: Wow. Brown’s final online fundraising tally today — $1 million+.
