Trailing in most of the latest polls, Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown spent Tuesday in a last-minute effort to gain the support of blue-collar voters. At a polling place in West Roxbury, the Republican came face to face with a large contingent of union workers supporting Democrat Elizabeth Warren.
During the brief confrontation, Brown attempted to paint Warren as out of touch with the group.
When Brown approached them, one union member yelled, “Pack your bags, buddy!” Others joined in the jeering: “Down with Brown!”
Brown, on the sidewalk, for a split second with no staff or his wife around him, looked genuinely disappointed.
“Really, guys?” he said. “I’m a 26-year union member and you’re busting my chops?” (Brown is a member of the Screen Actors Guild).
“You think she has anything in common with you?” Brown said, referring to Warren. It came out sounding more like a statement than a question.
