National Republican Party not interested in Jan. 19 Massachusetts U.S. Senate election

But fate of Barack Obama's agenda in America rests on outcome!

POSTED: January 8, 2010

In the election to fill Ted Kennedy's empty US Senate seat, the fate of Barack Obama's agenda in Congress will be decided in Massachusetts on January 19, as the possible 41st Republican could be elected to the US Senate, which would allow Democratic legislation to be blocked via filibuster.

This is essentially the difference between America taking one road or the other -- between a further government takeover of society and the economy, or restraint from that. It's that important. And that message is starting to resonate even in Massachusetts.

And polls show that Republican Scott Brown is closing in on Democrat Martha Coakley. The latest polls show that Brown is within 9 points overall, and is leading by an astonishing 65-21 among Independent voters.

But it's been painful to watch. Brown is picking up steam despite the indolence of the Republican Party. In a bizarre move, the national Republican Party has basically conceded the race (something the Democrats would NEVER do in a similar situation) and the national party is not aggressively helping Brown with funding or organization. He's virtually being left on his own.

As a result, Brown's campaign staff is basically Romney's second tier, his ads are relatively boring and unimaginative, and it clearly lacks the feel of big-time US Senate machine.

The campaign is mostly being run on sheer energy and grassroots activism. (And there's a LOT of that!) Brown's not exactly Winston Churchill on the stump, but he's managing to communicate, and he's pulling in a fair amount of money off the Internet and from lots of individual donors (though nowhere near what Coakley has). But nevertheless, he's still closing in.

The national Republicans are making a stupid mistake by sitting this out. Up until 2006 the Republicans have won every Governor's race in Massachusetts since 1990. Brown won his state senate seat in a district that had been electing a far-left liberal Democrat for years.
