Party Chiefs Square Off In 2012 Preview

Friday, February 11th, 2011
By Susan Prosnitz

Reprinted from The State House News

Democratic and Republican officials offered a preview of their 2012 campaign strategies Thursday at a discussion of campaign trail lessons. Democratic Party chair John Walsh and Republican Party chair Jennifer Nassour used their joint appearance at a Suffolk Law's Rappaport Center panel to spare over Scott Brown's upcoming defense of his U.S. Senate seat and the 2012 GOP Presidential field which includes former Gov. Mitt Romney. "I think for people who like politics... what you're hearing today is 2012 is going to be a year you're really going to love, because this is going to be a serious campaign," Walsh said. "The wisdom of the democratic primary voters will deliver us the right candidate" to challenge Brown, Walsh said. "I'd be proud to have any of them be our nominee and I think voters would vote for them because they'd be better senators than Scott Brown," Walsh said, adding that none of the potential Democratic candidates would have voted against the expansion of student loan programs, summer jobs or retaining benefits for the unemployed. "I think Scott Brown is doing exactly what he said he was going to do," Nassour responded.

When asked by moderator Scott Helman of the Boston Globe what Brown will run on, Nassour said Brown's grassroots network, campaign war chest and pro-business voting record are all components of the Brown effort. When talk turned to the 2012 Republican presidential primary race, Nassour said she doesn't see Romney's support of Massachusetts' health care reform law as a problem. "What Gov. Romney did here with health care, one, is constitutional in Massachusetts, two, was supposed to help the citizens of Massachusetts, and three, was supposed to be managed better than it's being managed," Nassour said. Both last year's special Senate election and gubernatorial campaigns were discussed by the panel, which also included Brown campaign veteran Rob Willington and Gov. Deval Patrick's deputy chief of staff Sydney Asbury, who managed Patrick's reelection effort.
