Brown, Warren scrap debate appearances

(CNN) – Shortly after Sen. Scott Brown's campaign announced Monday that the Republican incumbent will cancel his appearance at Tuesday's Senate debate in Massachusetts, his Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren also pulled out of the event. Both cited conditions related to Hurricane Sandy.

"It is simply not appropriate to go forward with a political debate when a disaster strikes," Colin Read, Brown's campaign communications director, said in a statement. "The focus for all of us before, during and after the storm needs to be on emergency response and disaster relief, not campaigns and politics."

New poll shows Mass. Senate race still close

(CNN) – The high-profile Senate battle in Massachusetts remains neck-and-neck in the final eight-day sprint to Election Day, according to a new poll released Monday.

Republican Sen. Scott Brown holds a slender edge over Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, 45% to 43%, among likely voters, the Boston Globe survey shows. That margin falls well within the sampling error, meaning the candidates are statistically tied.

Fewer barbs in third debate between Brown and Warren

(CNN) – After a pair of confrontational debates between Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, the two candidates toned it down slightly Wednesday for their third faceoff.

The debate focused largely on issues of taxes and the economy, with Warren asserting Brown favored big banks over middle class families, and Brown volleying back that his bipartisan record in the Senate showed he was on the side of working voters.

Brown, Warren spar in second debate

(CNN) – In their second debate in the Massachusetts Senate race, Republican Sen. Scott Brown on Monday sought to cement his image as an independent fighter, while Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren attempted to tie the senator to the conservative base of the Republican Party.

"I vote about 50 percent with my party and about 50 percent with the Democratic Party," Brown said at the debate, held at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. "That's a lot different than what Professor Warren would do."

In Massachusetts, Brown and Warren in ugly sprint to finish

(CNN) – The battle for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, which seemed over the summer to be the nation's most civil political race, has morphed into one of the ugliest.

In just the last three days, dueling attack ads have reignited the debate over Elizabeth Warren's Native American heritage, with Sen. Scott Brown, Warren's Republican rival, suggesting in his spot that Warren is untrustworthy.

Brown doesn't 'condone' staffers' actions

(CNN) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown, engaged in one of the nation's closest battles for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, said Tuesday he does not condone the offensive gestures and sounds some of his staffers made at a rally this week.

The Brown staffers were captured on video making "war whoops" and "tomahawk chops," an apparent reference to the controversy surrounding Warren's claim to Native American heritage during her time as a professor at Harvard Law School. Both Brown and Warren released television spots Monday on the topic.
