Ted Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat, he wants to play basketball with President Obama."]Boston (CNN) - Scott Brown says if he wins the special senate election to fill the last three years of the term of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, it will mean the voters are represented by a "regular guy."
Brown, a Republican state senator who's battling Democratic state attorney general Martha Coakley, made his comments after he voted Tuesday morning at a polling station in Wrentham, Massachusetts, near his home.
Asked by CNN Chief National Correspondent John King what message a Brown victory would send to President Barack Obama, the state senator said he'll show the president "my truck and play some basketball with him."
The truck is a green Dodge pickup truck, which Brown drove to the polling station. Brown has driven the truck across Massachusetts as he's campaigned for the senate seat, and the vehicle's appeared in his campaign commercials.
At a Coakley campaign rally Sunday, Obama appeared to make fun of the truck, saying "forget the truck. Everybody can buy a truck."
Brown also told King and others among a large group of reporters that his election would bring fairness and discussion back to Washington. He also cricitzed the Democrats for trying to rush health care reform through Congress.
Asked what would happen if, should Brown win, Democrats rushed through the healthcare legislation, Brown said people "would be outraged."
"I think that speaks for itself," he said. "I think people would be outraged and I think people pay for it in 2010 and the next midterm elections."
If Brown wins, he would become the 41 Republican in the Senate, depriving the Democrats of their 60 seat filibuster-proof supermajority. That could threaten the Democrats chances of passing health care reform.
