• Brown, Warren release new positive ads; don't wish each other good luck


    (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – In the final days until the election, Senator Scott Brown released a new upbeat ad, casting himself as an independent, bipartisan voice.

    Brown's challenger, Elizabeth Warren, also released a new positive ad to close out the campaign, calling herself the one who will fight for the middle class. Warren spoke with supporters at a restaurant in Quincy.

    Sen. Brown took part in a bus tour, appearing alongside Maine Sen. Susan Collins and comedian Lenny Clark at a restaurant in North Grafton.

    As the campaign comes to a close, no hard feelings between Warren and Brown?

    FOX 25's Sharman Sacchetti asked both candidates if they would wish each other good luck.

    "No, I wish me luck," Brown said as he continued on his bus tour. "But it's not about luck, it's about getting out votes."

    Warren, on the other hand, refused to even address the question.

    When asked, "Do you want to wish him good luck?" She responded, "This is really a race about the future of the country," and continued with her talking point. When asked again, she walked away.

    Both candidates spent the day looking to put a positive spin on a costly, and at times, intensely negative battle for U.S. Senate. However, neither candidate really sees it that way.

    "When you say intensely negative I don't think so.  I think it's very similar to other races. Just pointing out the differences…she talks about my record. I talk about the fact that she's not who she says she is," said Sen. Brown.

    When asked which is the message Warren wants people to take, the positive or the negative, she responded, "Look mine has always been about the issues…about the things that affect working families in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts." These days there is a new sense of urgency in both campaigns to get out the vote.

    This Senate race has become the most expensive in history, a price tag of $68 million.
