Fred Thompson Endorses Scott Brown « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Here’s a perfect example of how, inside the conservative base, the Scott Brown campaign for Senate in Massachusetts has become a lower-key, more gun-shy version of the push for Doug Hoffman’s unlikely bid in NY-23. Way back on September 28, 2009, a month and a week before the election, former senator and radio host Fred Thompson became the first GOP celebrityto endorse Hoffman. He went all in with an open letter, a TV ad, and campaign appearances.
Today, Thompson tweeted a message of supportfor Brown: “Scott Brown can win and be the vote to keep the dems and health care at bay.” It’s a measure of the support Brown is getting on talk radio, but it’s coming late in the game, and only after polls suggested that Brown was close enough to scare the Democrats. Just like Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) video endorsement of Brown, it’s a sign that Republicans want to be able to take credit for a close election — but that they’re not ready to put their political capital on the line for a likely defeat. (Democratic candidate Martha Coakley, after spooking some Democrats by holding onto her campaign war chest, is releasing a new TV ad today.)
