Obama aide says Brown ran good race for Senate
WASHINGTON—A top adviser to President Barack Obama says Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown ran a "very clever campaign" in Massachusetts.
But in a talk with reporters with voting under way Tuesday, David Axelrod also said he doesn't believe the Republican Party is the right option for people frustrated with the economy and a host of other issues, including the Washington power culture.
Axelrod agreed that "there's an awful lot of axiety among middle-class Americans." But he also said he didn't want to start any election post-mortems while voting is still under way. He did say he thought Brown ran a very good campaign, saying that "as a practitioner, my hat's off to him."
