Brown to campaign for McCain

Brown will campaign for McCain next month.

Brown will campaign for McCain next month.

(CNN) - The newest member of the Senate will soon hit the 2010 campaign trail for Arizona Sen. John McCain.

A McCain source confirms Sen. Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, will campaign with the 2008 Republican presidential nominee in early March. McCain is facing a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth.

Brown rocketed to stardom in the Republican Party after scoring an upset victory in the Massachusetts special Senate election last month to fill the seat of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy. He was sworn into the chamber Thursday afternoon.

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin will also hit the campaign trail for McCain at the end of March.

    Boring.... McCain will loose Arizona... either to another Republican or Democrat. It's inevitable.

    Who cares, Brown is just a flash in the pan. As soon as the people of Massachusetts realize what they've elected, he'll be out.

    McCain sure has turned into an ultra-conservative. Whatever happened to "going rogue"? He really should consider retiring and let Cindy take over.

    Scott Brown won in MA on the promise of smaller, more efficient government! This will help McCain win!

    Psst... let's put a positive spin on the fact that Scott's mother was on welfare? http://bit.ly/8GTp7d

    I pretty sure people from Arizona don't care what a senator from another state has to say. Especially this newb u.s. senator. But there goes Mcshame old thinking, that this senator will increase his votes. Ha! Good luck with that! McShame needs to be put in a retirement home... 5 years ago!

    Can't believe the blant racism in this country. I'm sure other countries are appalled!

    Bad idea, Senator Brown! Mc Cain should definitely retire. He has nothing positive to offer to his country anymore. If you attach yourself with the “NO” Republicans, you will not have to offer America much either.

    This is way too humorous. Add Tancredo into the mix with the other crazies: Palin, michele Bachman, Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck. This should be covered on Comedy Central not CNN!!!

    Can't believe the blatant racism out there! I'm sure other countries are having a good laugh at all the dummies who are giving Palin airtime as well!

    If McCain doesn't get a boost from this, it proves that not only Brown didn't win because of the Tea Party but also because Massachussettes has more independents than Tea Party members.

    Oh, that's almost funny! A "playboy" boy-toy and senile McSame - what a combo!

    After the failed 2008 election and the birth of the witch i would think mccain would give it up. At least she had the decency of quitting on Alaska. I hope the citizens of AZ have better sense, but neither candidate is worth it.
    Now we have the failed beauty queen and the nude centerfold model (not porn because it's not Levi) campaigning for mccain. The man who sold his soul and life for the presidency.
    Quite the trio.

    Will he pose nude for John McCain?

    I like this guy. I do marvel though at the descriptions of his election. Of course he was elected. The opposition, although the same party as Kennedy, showed no likeness to him that I could see. As for the medical, MA already has government medical so of course they are not interested in paying for another one. This was not a great surprise. As for John McCain, as an Arizonan, I have much respect for him and hope he wins again. (I did not think much of his choice for VP in his Presidential race) I'm glad to see McCain and Brown together.

    time for old man McCain to head off to a retirement home where his dementia can be properly treated. McCain is one of a dying breed of Reagan-era political opportunists and liars.

    McCain's too old. Put him out to pasture.

    Sorry to hear that the new Senator plans to support John McCain. With McCain's poor record on immigration, I guess we have another in Washington who is going to try to sell up on the fact that millions of illegal aliens are good for this country and they approve of Americans having to compete for jobs. He said that the seat no longer belonged to Teddy Kennedy, but he's carrying on Teddy's tradition of selling out to the anti-American organizations trying to destroy our country.

    Brown's been elected to work for the people of Massachusetts and the people of the U.S. And the first thing he is going to do is go on the McCain campaign trail. What an outrage!!!!!!!!!!

    This is what our political system has become.
