The newly-elected head of the Massachusetts Republican party says the GOP remains optimistic that it can win an upcoming special election for the U.S. Senate, even though former Sen. Scott Brown won’t be running.
Kirsten Hughes said in a statement that there are “many potential candidates” who are weighing possible candidacies on Friday following Brown’s announcement that he would not run in the June 25 special election.
Hughes did not mention the names of any possible candidates in the statement.
As soon as the Massachusetts GOP finds someone to run, they’re totally going to beat the pants off the Democratic candidate. And they’ll get 70% of the African-American vote, 90% of the gay vote, and 100% of unmarried women.
