Sen.-Elect Scott Brown Implies GOP "Beholden" To "Special Interests," Doesn't Look For Solutions

January 20, 2010 12:28 pm ET — Chris Harris

The Truth Comes Out

The day after winning the Massachusetts special election, Senator-elect Scott Brown inadvertently implied Washington Republicans are "beholden" to "special interests" and don't seek "to solve problems."

Senator-elect Scott Brown:

I was asked many times what kind of Republican I would be and I didn't really know how to answer that so I just said I'm gonna be a Scott Brown Republican. Maybe there's a new breed of Republican coming to Washington, maybe people will finally look at somebody who's not beholden to the special interests of the party and who will look to, you know, just to solve problems.

Here's hoping he means it.  I'm sure Senate Democrats would welcome his support as they stand up to health insurance and big oil companies.  But based on his campaign platform, I'm not holding my breath.
