Snowe Backs Scott Brown

Retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe endorsed Sen. Scott Brown Thursday, the Massachusetts senator announced on his website. Brown is running for reelection, against likely Democratic nominee Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.

“In an institution characterized by gridlock and partisanship, Scott Brown is a much-needed breath of fresh air,” said Senator Snowe. “During the last two years, I have worked closely with Scott and have come to appreciate his independent spirit and bipartisan outlook. Like me, he approaches each issue with an open mind and is always willing to reach across the aisle to build bridges and find common ground. As I leave the Senate, it is my deep hope that this institution and America will continue to benefit from the thoughtful leadership of Scott Brown and others who favor progress over partisanship.”
