Sen. Scott Brown Picks Up Endorsement from Former Governor Paul Cellucci
Former Gov. Paul Cellucci, who served as governor and lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, endorsed Sen. Scott Brown for U.S. Senate on Wednesday.
Incumbent U.S. Senate candidate Sen. Scott Brown added another former governor to his list of supporters on Wedneday, this time former Governor Paul Cellucci.
Cellucci served as lieutenant governor in Massachusetts under Gov. Bill Weld from 1991-1997, then moved on to governor from 1997 to 2001. Brown picked up an endorsement from former Governor Weld a few weeks ago.
Cellucci said in a video released by the Brown campaign that his support comes from Brown's stance as "moderate on social issues and conservative on fiscal issues," and his "record of bipartisanship."
"I would say we need more people, desperately need more people, like Scott Brown... who will vote on the issue," he said. "He will do what's best for Massachusetts and for our country. And he will work with Republicans and Democrats to solve the big problems the United States faces."
Cellucci, a Republican, worked with Brown on Beacon Hill when Brown served as a state representative. A few weeks ago, Brown picked up an endorsement from former Governor Bill Weld.
