The following is from 1st Bristol district state representative Jay Barrows.
I’m writing to express my full support for the re-election of U.S. Senator Scott Brown. Scott represents an independent voice for Massachusetts in Congress. I can personally attest to his sound judgment, great character, and bipartisan attitude from our time working together at the State House. Now, more than ever, we need leaders in Washington who are prepared to deal with not only the economic issues facing this country but the military ones as well. As a Lieutenant in the National Guard, Senator Brown has the background and the specific knowledge we need as our country faces a more turbulent international climate. Incredibly impressive to me, both personally and professionally, is Senator Brown's attentiveness to the legislation …

The debate will be moderated by “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory and will begin at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 1.
The second debate between U.S. Senate incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is slated for Monday night, October 1, and the meetup promises to be a showdown. A Week of Back and Forth Since the first debate between the two candidates a week ago, Brown's campaign has been pressing Warren on her claim to Native American ancestry. “Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color — and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said at the debate, inferring Warren got special treatment from her employers because of her heritage. ”I didn’t get an advantage because of my background,” Warren said.
