Lt. Governor Andre Bauer is celebrating Scott Brown’s victory as the newest Senator from Massachusetts. Brown won the seat left open by Ted Kennedy. Bauer went to the Bay State this past weekend to campaign for his fellow Republican– and used one of his favorite tactics:
“Early in the morning I got out and did what I call “roadside waves’ much like I did in South Carolina, where I sit at an intersection where people can pull over and ask me questions about the campaign, where people can tell me what they are thinking, and where I can get feedback. There was a big crowd of us on Saturday morning, then later in the day I want to businesses and knocked on doors.”
Bauer says he was able to see firsthand the grassroots support for Brown. Bauer took lots of pictures and talked to lots of folks he said, learning that status quo can be challenged anywhere. Bauer was able to catch up with Scott Brown at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Bauer says, “When I went through rural communities outside Boston, through Worcester, you could see homemade signs in the back of pickup trucks, you could see homemade signs at farms. They took the time to stop what they were doing and make signs; it’s not like they got one from the campaign.”
Bauer says this victory for Republicans is amazing to have happened in a union-strong state like Massachusetts.
