Large Brown supporter turnout at Coakley rally

← return to Water Cooler


If there is one thing the Scott Brown campaign is overflowing with right now, its volunteers. A rousing contingent of Brown supporters appeared at a press conference for him in front of Paul Revere’s statue in a park named after the Revolutionary War era hero this afternoon and followed the Republican state Senator and former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani around Boston’s north end (see photo on right). Brown supporters are so revved up, a large and loud group of them appeared outside (see photo above) of Brown opponent Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley’s rally tonight in Worcester.

The crowd of Brown fans was so impressive for a counter-rally, if one did not know any better, it would be easy to mistake, at first glance, that Mr. Brown was speaking to supporters in an auditorium at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and not Ms. Coakley. Mr. Brown and Mr. Giuliani went after Ms. Coakley for being soft on terrorism issues, while Ms. Coakley, with former president Bill Clinton at her side, told her crowd of supporters tonight, “I think just because you’re riding around in a truck doesn’t mean you’re going in the right direction.”
