Well he could be losing supported -- in Massachusetts democratic congressmen Ed Markey taking -- head in his quest Florida.
Senate from these scandals and Watson or at least that's what -- -- -- still that is not stopping amber stopping with the president today.
To former Republican Massachusetts senator Scott Brown on how much trouble he thinks Washington insiders of any sort might be having right now.
Senator good to have you back -- you know he still has a healthy lead it's just not as healthy lead.
You've proven that a Republican can win -- Massachusetts it's tough but it can be done.
Does mark give any reason to really see here.
Well listen any -- the president comes to Massachusetts it's a big deal and he'll get a little bit of a bomb.
The reason the president is coming here is for obvious reasons mark his campaign is flat.
There's no energy at all I don't see anything I don't not hearing from the usual.
Ground forces out there system and yet when you look up but Washington insider in Webster's dictionary is a picture of Ed Markey.
You know he's been there for over thirty years these.
Voted to raise taxes over 220 times.
He is not fighting for the people of Massachusetts.
Out of touch of what's happening around here in the slogan is anybody but marquis.
And so that's why the prisons here you Biden gore announced price Hillary won't be coming in on the next plane -- They unload all of those big guns against you alarmed to little avail on -- you so Ted Kennedy's seat for God's sake.
So so I I guess there is a possibility of breaking.
President and shattering a reputation that it's only liberals who survived in that -- state.
It would it all hang on these scandals would apple would be that because that would -- -- this would have to have some residual over -- Well even with the scandals the president has an unusually high approval rating even in Massachusetts resolutely as -- seen by some of the polling numbers.
-- the polling as all over the place it's been a down wind sit down six or seven.
I think it's going to be very close it really comes down the numbers you only have 11% Republicans in Massachusetts.
Over 30% Democrat the restaurant and rolled independent.
I will -- instead -- restaurant independent I didn't know -- was that -- yeah well it is so they're really gonna decide the race that you could have every Republican come out.
And half the Democrats and just done that along you -- but then you throw in the independents.
And that's where the real the real election's going to be one and and -- -- not doing too well with independents -- Gomez needs -- obviously.
You know get people motivated and fired up.
I don't feel it on either side right now but there is still a little bit of time.
You make of these scandals and whether they are resonating now because when it comes to whether Americans are -- clearly there are -- that's for sure -- whether they think they go higher up clearly they do that's for sure armed.
But when it comes to whether it touches the president himself.
We're now most are Satan.
Not quite and there does seem to be a Percival.
Who you know.
Reservoir of support to the president enjoys not overwhelmingly but -- -- us.
To have them hold -- the more serious charges that that he was behind all this is that enough.
Well I think as as your previous guess my cousin mr.
brown said I don't care -- that.
I'd be shocked if there wasn't some type of knowledge from the top I -- -- -- he's a nice guy got a guy wanna -- have a beer with.
But when it comes down to micro -- they know exactly what's going on.
They know every detail it was a speaker Nancy it's a question -- -- how does he.
This and that's the question every time you turn around every week there's something more more more I remember.
When we had the original band guys hearings ahead trying to eight it's her try it examine.
Secretary Clinton it was like pulling -- that never been part of anything.
Where there was so much kind moving -- -- with every person on the committee and now we've seen.
Further and further on as we go along that is more more that comes out every day there's a new a new issue and I think.
You got to continue to find more more -- a vote each and every one of those scandals the bottom line does it affect them.
You know it's it's hard to say is there is like the Teflon president.
In some respects so we'll see what happens.
Do you ever in your gut.
Regret not -- full throttle under this race.
-- -- this race because to raise another thirty to fifty million dollars and then turn around the next day now is another fifty to seventy.
It's only a thirteen month term ahead of -- longer -- would have done it absolutely.
And quite frankly had I not had the opportunity to speak to the good people watching right now.
On this set TV station I would've that -- more than likely done a bit.
I can challenge both sides right now to do a better and I can tell you what they're not doing it well at all there's still dysfunctional.
There's still not cooperating working together in an American people deserve better so that sounds like not this seat not right now but that others see maybe -- Yeah I don't think I'm done welcome Scott Brown always a pleasure.
