Scott Brown’s U.S. Senate campaign today introduced a 30-second radio spot that synthesizes multiple complaints he and others in Congress have registered regarding perceived injustices to and federal mismanagement of the commercial fishing industry.
Since January, as part of the Republican’s effort to win a full six-year term for the seat he took in a special election in 2010 after the death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Brown’s campaign has been running weekly radio spots on topics as varied as “Americans First,” “military jobs,” “tax,” “jobs” and “the Red Sox.”
Brown and the presumed Democratic nominee, Harvard Professor Elizabeth Warren, have been locked in a tight and high visibility race since the start of the year, when Warren became a national favorite of party activists and donors.
