It worked for Scott Brown, so why can't it work for Dan Winslow? That seems to be Winslow's logic anyway, as he mounts a run for state representative in the 9th Norfolk district.
Winslow, a former top aide to Mitt Romney who did legal work for Brown's Senate campaign, has a new YouTube video that spoofs the Brown narrative we all know now by heart -- the regular dude from Wrentham with a truck.
In Winslow's case, though, it's not a big GMC pick-up. It's a bike.
"I'm Dan Winslow, I'm running for state representative, and this is my bike," Winslow says, hopping on his old black Trek. "It takes me door-to-door to meet the people of Wrentham, Plainville, Norfolk, Walpole, Millis, and Medfield."
The minute-long web ad ends with the beep-beep of a horn off-camera, as Winslow raises an arm and says, "Hey, Scott!"
One quibble, though, Dan: Where's the helmet?
