|Description||Massachusetts Republicans have their best candidate on the sidelines, but still see the potential to win an upcoming special Senate election like they did three years ago. |
They argue the dynamics that helped Republican Scott Brown win the 2010 special election for an open Senate seat have re-emerged for this summer’s race for Democratic Sen. John Kerry’s old seat.
Despite political strategists saying Republicans now face longer odds with lesser-known candidates and little time for raising money in heavily Democratic Massachusetts, state party leaders see opportunity in both situations.
State Republican Party spokesman Tim Buckley pointed out Tuesday that Election Day is June 25, so the campaigns will be less expensive than typical ones.
