(NECN: Mike Cronin) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown made an appearance in Worcester on Thursday and picked up an endorsement from the former president of the Worcester Teamsters Union.
“I know that my union is not happy with the decision I've made today. But you have to cross over that center lane. You have to be a bi-partisan and nobody does it any better than Scott Brown,” Carl Gentile, the former president, said.
Democrat opponent Elizabeth Warren greeted seniors at the Taunton Nursing Home. In the wake of Brown claiming Warren was using paid actors in her ads to defend herself for an asbestos lawsuit - today a son of an asbestos victim spoke out.
“I'm not an overpaid actor. I'm an ordinary construction worker just like my father. We were all in the same business, my two brothers and all my cousins and I don't see any Hollywood in construction,” said John English.
On Wednesday, Brown apologized for his comments, and responded to them on Thursday.
“She's been the one who's been representing those large corporations against those victims. It's unfair. I should have verified it. I said I was sorry and I want to reiterate that,” he said.
As Election Day approaches, it's becoming clear Central Massachusetts is a battleground for the two candidates.
“The people down here, they understand what's going on. They understand that there's a real battle in terms of my opponent wanting to take more of their hard earned money to Washington to not pay down the debt or deficit, but to maintain or increase government spending,” Brown said in Worcester on Thursday.
Warren was in Worcester on Wednesday to pick up an endorsement from Republican former chairperson of the FDIC.
“Central Massachusetts is where we've got good, hard-working families, small businesses, and they're the ones who are going to be most affected by the outcome in this race. They're the reason I'm running,” she said.
