Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) came out in opposition to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's controversial comments that were made public Monday night in an attempt to distance himself from a candidate that remains deeply unpopular in Massachusetts..."That’s not the way I view the world. As someone who grew up in tough circumstances, I know that being on public assistance is not a spot that anyone wants to be in. Too many people today who want to work are being forced into public assistance for lack of jobs," he said in an email to The Hill.
Will the red state Republicans follow?
UPDATE 3:32 PM: And a third. New Mexico governor Susana Martinez, who gave a pretty good speech at the RNC a few weeks ago, has basically divorced herself from Romney's statements.
