Brown steps up focus on women
Senator needs their votes in fall, analysts say
Last week, US Senator Scott Brown shared the St. Patrick’s Day breakfast stage with his daughter Ayla as she sang ’’God Bless America.’’ He toured a shelter for victims of domestic violence on Friday with his sister, where the two shared stories of their difficult childhoods. And on Monday, he and his wife, Gail Huff, joined US Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine to announce the formation of the “Women for Brown Coalition.’’ Brown, a Republican facing a difficult challenge from Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, has been hard to spot without a woman by his side in recent weeks. .
