“Just walked passed Senator Brown’s office and in the hallway was the man himself, lamenting into his cell phone, ‘I don’t understand how she can be down 20 points one week and is now up two. What is going on?’,” the tipster wrote.
The tipster goes on to say that Brown then looked over his shoulder and saw the tipster and hurried back into his office.
A poll released Tuesday by Democratic-affiliated Public Policy Polling showed new Democrat challenger Elizabeth Warren holding a very narrow 46-44 lead over Brown.
Brown, a Republican who won a special election for the seat vacated by the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), campaigned specifically against Warren even before she entered the race, painting her as an elitist who had no idea how to solve Massachusetts issues.
Brown spokesman Colin Reed underplayed Warren’s bump in polling numbers.
“We have always known that Scott would be the underdog against whichever candidate wins the Democratic primary next September,” Reed told Talking Points Memo. “But Scott has been an underdog his entire life, and has always come back to win against all odds. This campaign will be no different.”
