HOLDEN, Mass. — A townwide standout for Sen. Scott Brown (R) was held Friday, with residents holding signs from one end of Holden to the other in support of their candidate.
The event was organized by Anthony Renzoni, who serves as a Holden selectman but was out Friday as a citizen in support of Brown.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Holden voters will choose between Brown, the incumbent, and Democrat challenger Elizabeth Warren. Renzoni hoped to hold one large show of support for Brown in town before the voting.
"We want all our undecided friends and neighbors to see that there is overwhelming support, in Holden and throughout the region, for Sen. Brown," said Renzoni. "This isn't about R's vs. D's, this is about who can best represent us."
State Rep. Kim Ferguson (R-Holden) was among those who supported Brown's campaign, and she was excited to see all the energy in Holden. After stumping in towns across her district, Ferguson said she was anxious for Election Day.
Renzoni and Ferguson were joined by over 30 other residents and members of the Holden's Republican Town Committee, who held their signs at Holden's intersections on a cold and rainy November day.
"All these towns are filled with hardworking, good people, and I know there's a war on the middle class, but the middle class right now is hurting. I do a lot of the grocery shopping and the cost of my eggs has doubled, my milk has doubled, gasoline is bordering on $4. We've been stretched too thin, and I appreciate Sen. Brown's position in Washington. I think he does represent the interest of the people in Massachusetts."
Marshall Horwitz, chairman of the Holden Republican Town Committee, said he was encouraged by the show of support.
"This community, the state and this country needs bipartisanship, someone who can work across the aisle," he said. "When Ms. Warren was asked to name one vote she disagreed with in respect to Harry Reid, she couldn't name one. I've been married 30 years and my wife and I don't agree on everything. It's an insult to the people of Holden and to the people of Massachusetts to say that you will vote in lock-step, 100 percent of the time with the Senate majority leader."
