(NECN: Deanna Morgan, Methuen, Mass.) - Mass. Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren may not have much in common as far as views and state leadership is concerned, but they were in the same page about one thing on Thursday: Making a campaign stop in Methuen, Mass.
Scott Brown started his Thursday morning in Chelmsford, Mass. with Dunkin Donuts in hand for workers at Legion Construction. He shook hands, chatted for a while, met some employees, then headed out the door to head for Methuen.
"You know, there's some recent polls where it has me climbing and her sinking, and you're gonna notice more negative attacks and desperate attacks on me and my record," said Brown.
Brown spoke briefly about his record and went in depth about his views. He continues to call himself an independent voter and thinker, a challenger of his own party, a pro-choice, pro-jobs Senator who is focused primarily on the economy in this race. Elizabeth Warren, he says, is not.
"She wants to focus on everything, but I'm gonna focus on the things that people are really talking about," he said.
Warren countered back during a stop at a local gelato shop in Methuen Thursday afternoon.
"For me, what this race is about is working families and small businesses," said Warren. "I've been out there fighting for then for years and in going to keep on doing that if I have a chance to go to the United States Senate."
With less than three months left until election day, Methuen residents probably are hoping it won't be Warren or Scott Brown's last.
Elizabeth Warren made it a point to talk about female voters. In regards to who they can trust, and in reference to herself, Warren said "Women want someone they can count on every single day."
