Will Tisei Join Scott Brown in Dropping Romney?
Following Mitt Romney’s outrageous comments insulting nearly half the country including every senior on Social Security, The Hill newspaper reports that Senator Scott Brown refuses to support Romney’s presidential campaign. Will Richard Tisei (MA-06) join his fellow Massachusetts Republican in abandoning Romney, or will he continue to support Romney and his anti-senior, anti-middle class agenda?
“Richard Tisei has a choice, he can either continue supporting Mitt Romney and his ‘47%’ comments or join Senator Brown in withholding support for their party’s presidential nominee,” said Josh Schwerin, Northeast Press Secretary at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Richard Tisei needs to stand up for the Social Security recipients in his district and drop his support for Mitt Romney today.”
Scott Brown Refused To Say Whether He Still Supported Romney. “Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) refused to say whether he still supports Mitt Romney for president on Wednesday, a day after he distanced himself from Romney's now famous ‘47 percent’ remarks in comments first made to The Hill. ‘I made it very, very clear where I stand on these issues,’ he told reporters Wednesday. But Brown hedged when asked by The Hill if Romney's comments made him hesitant to support him. ‘Listen, you're going to have to speak to Governor Romney about what his plans are. I'm doing what I've been doing,’ he said.” [The Hill, 9/19/12]
