I told you so. Remember? Don't be surprised if Scott Brown passes on another shot at Senate. He's out. I'm not a psychologist, but allow me to crawl inside Brown's head.
He's still smarting from his loss to Elizabeth Warren. He knows that another failure will permanently end his political career.
Also, my sources tell me that his loved ones played a big part in his decision. Even if Brown won the special election, he'd be on the campaign trail for another two years and then have to run again in a general election. He knows he could not count on big support from the national Republican Party and the local party.
A little more than twelve hours ago his hand-picked candidate won the chairmanship of a much-fractured Massachusetts Republican Party. State GOP activists are evenly divided, that's not a good foundation to build on.
If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd think that democrats orchestrated the upstart campaign of Stephen Lynch to scare away Scott Brown. You heard Lynch take shots at Brown's truck yesterday.
Bottom line, he who fights and runs away may live to fight another day. Isn't that right "Governor" Brown?
