The Democratic video tracker who has followed Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) around the campaign trail, hoping to spot a gaffe by the incumbent, may have just committed a minor fumble of his own.
Staffer Matt Cadwallader posted this message on his Twitter account Jan. 25: “Just saw a Ford Probe with gull-wing doors installed. Welcome to Springfield, MA.”
The Boston Globe reports:
Cadwallader isn’t the most high profile member of the state Democratic Party, so it took a while for his comment to attract notice.
But Brown’s campaign accused him today of looking down his nose at the state’s third largest city, and called on Democrat Elizabeth Warren to apologize.
“This is a blatantly elitist statement,” Brown campaign spokesman Colin Reed said. “It’s unfortunate that Professor Warren’s campaign team have a low opinion of Western Massachusetts. For too long, the people of Springfield have been ignored and looked down upon by folks in Boston.”
