Sen. Brown, Warren Try to Build Off Springfield Debate

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are hoping to use the momentum of their third debate to reach out to undecided voters as they head into the final weeks of Massachusetts’ hard-fought Senate race.

Warren is planning to visit a bakery and fire station in Holyoke on Thursday before visiting a second fire station in Worcester.

Brown is scheduled to be in Hudson to pick up an endorsement from former state Environmental Affairs secretary and Democratic state Sen. Bob Durand.

During Wednesday’s debate, the two battled over who would be better at creating jobs, cutting taxes, holding down the federal deficit and protecting Medicare during the face-off at Springfield’s Symphony Hall.

A recurring theme was Warren’s assertion that Brown was protecting millionaires at the expense of average Americans, countered by Brown’s insistence that any increase in taxes would hurt the economy.
