Warren and Brown begin final campaign push

Posted: Updated:
CHICOPEE, MA (WSHM) -

With less than four days to go until the election Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren are making a last-minute push to reach voters in Western Mass. 

"Don't go to bed on Nov. 6 wishing that you had done more and lose an advocate for your city, for your towns for yourselves," said Brown.

Friday, Brown began his day in Chicopee at the Munich Haus Restaurant where he asked a packed crowd to help him reach out to voters.

"I'm not a divider, I'm a unifier, and I want to unify people," said Brown. "That is really what this is about, sending someone down who is going to fight for everyone, not just particular groups."

"I think the message that is most important to get out to voters here in Massachusetts is that Scott is working tirelessly every single day for all of us," said the senator's wife, Gail Huff. "He's not working for one party, he's not working for one special interest group, he's not working for one gender, he is working for everyone."

Brown made two stops in Western Mass on Friday as part of his bus tour across the state. After Chicopee, he stopped by Boilard Lumber in Indian Orchard.

"I think he has the understanding of what we do on a daily basis," said the owner of Boilard Lumber, Bob Boilard. "We get up early in the morning, we work 10 hours a day, we put a lot on the line to keep our businesses going and we feel that Sen. Brown understands that and will help us with that."

Meanwhile, Warren spent her day in the eastern part of the state campaigning.

Warren will be in Springfield Saturday, but Friday, Rep. Barney Frank came to the area on her behalf.

"Elizabeth Warren is an excellent advocate and has already distinguished herself with legislative accomplishments," said Frank.

Frank addressed a crowd at Warren's Northampton headquarters and emphasized to them the national importance of the race.

"It's got national implications in large part because the fate of the Senate is an issue," said Frank. "If Scott Brown wins, it is much more likely that the Republicans will control the Senate."

Supporters at the event say they will continue to push for votes for Warren in the final days before the election.

"She's smart, tough, and honest and you know she has more integrity, as we know, in her little finger than the rest of the whole world," said supporter, Phyllis Woolf.
