Warren ad tweaks Brown for refusing debate offer
BOSTON — Democrat Elizabeth Warren is tweaking Massachusetts Sen. Scott P. Brown for refusing a final debate offer.
The fourth debate was planned for Tuesday, but was delayed because of Superstorm Sandy.
Ms. Warren agreed to a Thursday debate, but the GOP’s Mr. Brown declined. He had twice pledged that a final debate would happen, but a Brown aide said it conflicted with a bus tour he planned for the close of the re-election campaign.
In Ms. Warren’s new radio ad, a narrator faults Mr. Brown for backing out of the debate, saying “rather than discuss the issues, he had to grab a bus” and adding “with his record you can’t blame him for hitting the road.”
Mr. Brown also released two new radio ads, including one featuring former Democratic Boston Mayor Ray Flynn praising Mr. Brown as independent.
Labor leaders say volunteers will be out helping Obama
Labor leaders expect 128,000 volunteers to campaign for President Obama and other union-friendly candidates during the final four days before the Nov. 6 election.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says union members would knock on 5.5 million doors, make 5.2 million phone calls and mail 12 million fliers between Saturday and Election Day.
The union federation is focusing much of its strength in the battleground state of Ohio, where about 13.4 percent of all workers belong to a union.
Unions have a strong campaign infrastructure in Ohio after working last year to pass a ballot measure that repealed a law curbing collective bargaining rights for public workers. That measure passed with 62 percent of the vote.
