How Significant Is Westford to Warren and Brown's Chances?

Westford has not gotten much attention from either candidate compared to many other parts of the state, will that play a role in the race?

 

Election Day is less than a week away, and both Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown are looking for votes everywhere they can in a U.S. Senate race that is razor thin here in Massachusetts.

However, are they looking for those votes here in Westford?

To our knowledge, during the campaign Scott Brown has had only one campaign stop in Westford (at Kimball Farm) and Elizabeth Warren hasn't had any, although Massachusetts Republican Party spokesperson Tim Buckley said Westford is part of an incredibly critical strategy that includes efforts in the Merrimack Valley as a whole.

So today we want to ask you: will Westford play a significant role on election day when it comes to who will be Massachusetts next U.S. Senator? Or do other issues make Westford not particularly relevant regardless of who wins?

Let us know what you think!


NOTE: Repeated attempts to obtain a comment from the Elizabeth Warren campaign were not returned.

I would rather chug the Kool aid with Warren, Arciero and Barack than sip tea with Brown, Worrell and Mitt

Westford or Chelmsford? I'm sure Scott Brown only visited because he probably has a few donor buddies there. Why else would Westford be an "incredibly critical" campaign stop?

Hard knocks or Harvard privilege? I'll stick with beer, camo and the pickup.

Good question. Westford is a town where Brown already had a high level of volunteers and support - so much so, they didn't need extra help when I asked. It's also a traditionally conservative town, at least it is for anything not local, the more local you get, the more it's a popularity contest.

Let's see to I want a senator that is looking our for the best intrests of Mass. second most partisian senator i D.C., who is not in lock step with his party or do I vote for the Harvard professor who will rubber stamp every piece of Democrat legislation regradless of impact to Mass.? Choice seems prety easy to me, I will take the senator that actually thinks before he votes.

Agreed.

Why is there only a picture of the Warren supporters? Couldn't you have done a split photo to represent both sides??

Hey Michelle, I checked in with several local and state level GOP candidates and organizers to see if there were any local visibilities like this one for the Brown campaign, but never got an answer -- there were a few combined GOP visibilities, but none that I was told for Brown like this one was just for Warren. The Westford for Warren folks are out at Minot's Corner frequently.
