In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print tomorrow, online now -- I write that US Senator Scott Brown will be very difficult to beat this November.
Recent polls have shown him lead Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, which seemed to come as a shock to a lot of Massachusetts Democrats and Washington pundits.
It shouldn't be a surprise. Away from the hot-button issues and Beacon Hill controversies, Brown has been doing what he does best: connecting with his constituents.
Give it a read, and let me know what you think: Great Scott.
