Brown: En Route to Boston, Tonight's Debate is On
Sen. Scott Brown reportedly left D.C. in the nick of time to make a 4:30 p.m. flight to Boston in order to make tonight's debate at 7 p.m.
Sen. Scott Brown is reportedly en route from Washington D.C. to Boston in order to make it for tonight's debate versus Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, after speculation that he may miss the debate.
The incumbent candidate said on Thursday afternoon that he may miss the Thursday night debate in Boston due to a senate vote happening in D.C.
Brown told the Boston Globe that if there were senate votes scheduled through the rest of the afternooon, he would have to miss the debate.
"Voting is 'the one thing that I can’t delegate to the staff,' he told the Globe. 'I’ve only missed one vote.'
Brown told the Globe he would attempt to make a 4:30 p.m. plane so he could make it to WBZ studios by 7 p.m. for the flight. According to WBZ News Radio's Twitter account, Brown made that flight.
"Tonight’s WBZ Senate Debate is on! Senator Brown tells Jon Keller he is en route to the airport," WBZ tweeted at 3:37 p.m.
