Massachusetts independent gubernatorial candidate Tim Cahill has hit back against the Republican Governors Association ad buy. Does his ad remind you of an earlier one? The Boston Globe notices it looks an awful lot like an earlier one by Scott Brown.
As a conservative independent and former Democrat, Cahill is banking that he is more representative of the kind of Massachusetts voter who sent Brown to the Senate than Republican nominee Charlie Baker. The question is whether the Scott Brown Democrats and independents can deliver Cahill the governorship — or whether he and Baker will fracture the center-right coalition needed to beat Gov. Deval Patrick.
