Released via web today from Mitt Romney former Republican Governor in Massachusetts.
I hope you are enjoying the holidays and let me take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year!
This is going to be an exciting year politically. Republicans stand to make significant gains in Senate, House, and gubernatorial contests around the country. But before we get to the 2010 mid-term elections, there's something brewing in Massachusetts.
A special election to replace Ted Kennedy in the United States Senate will be held on January 19th. State Senator Scott Brown is running a determined campaign to make history by becoming the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts since Edward W. Brooke 30 years ago.
Scott's election would shock the country and send a strong message that business as usual in Washington is coming to an end. He would bring badly-needed fiscal restraint to an out-of-control budget process that is adding trillions of dollars to our national debt.
If he is successful, Scott will be the crucial 41st vote against President Obama's healthcare bill when it comes back to the Senate for final passage.
As Governor, I could always count on Scott's vote in the Legislature in the fight against higher taxes and wasteful spending. He is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army National Guard and understands the importance of a strong national defense. He's opposed to cap and trade, wants strict limits on spending and is in favor of broad-based tax cuts to get our economy moving.
I hope you will visit Scott's website and consider helping him with a donation.
There are only 22 days left until the special election in Massachusetts. Wouldn't it be nice to elect a fiscal conservative to Ted Kennedy's seat in the United States Senate?
