Elizabeth Warren is running hard left in her rhetoric, but the reality is she served big companies in her extensive private legal practice and got paid big, big dollars for it.

At the first debate, Brown scored big po...

Quick takes on the debate which just ended.

End Result — As with most of these things, people will see what they want.

I’d say while Brown won hands down the first debate, this one was more even.  Brown won big on Warren’s personal problems, which took up the first 15 minutes or...

This is the second debate, being held at U. Mass. Lowell, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern.  There should be live feeds on MassLive.com, uml.edubostonherald.com, and CBS 3 in Springfield . It may also be on CSPAN.

David Gregory is the moderator – ugh.  Let me guess how that will go.  It should be...

Via The Boston Globe, Scott Brown has launched his first ad regarding Elizabeth Warren’s claim to be Native American:

The 30-second spot, called “Who knows?” features television reporters talking about Warren “identifying herself as Native American to employers. …Something genealogists said they have zero evidence of.”

At the conclusion, a reporter asks Warren:...

The debate last Thursday night between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren covered ground mostly known to voters.

But there was one subject most people watching probably did not know about, Elizabeth Warren’s private legal representation of The Travelers Insurance Company in an asbestos-related case.

Brown brought the point up late in the debate, and hammered it:

There is no question that Scott Brown won the debate last night.

It wasn’t a knock out.  As Howie Carr correctly notes, a man can’t get away with hitting a woman too hard in a debate:

When he was pummeling her on the asbestos litigation, and her $225,000 payday, and on the $700,000...

Very strong opening for Brown on fake Cherokee issue.  He didn’t handle it the way I would have, but he picked an issue — the release of her employment records — and stuck to...

There have been several polls released recently, showing everything from a virtual dead heat to Elizabeth Warren ahead by low single digits.

This was a contrast to pre-DNC polls, which showed Brown ahead by low single digits.  Clearly Warren received a convention bounce, almost entirely from increased support from Democrats.

Oh, irony of ironies.

Late last month, Elizabeth Warren falsely accused Scott Brown of telling Warren to stop talking by using a doctored video which cut Brown off mid-sentence.  The full sentence, however, made it clear Brown only was telling her to stop distorting his positions.

Meanwhile, Warren’s image has suffered from her many...

A poll by Kimball Political Consulting, apparently a Republican leaning entity, found that the Senate race has tightened.

Whereas two weeks ago Brown was up by 6 (consistent with PPP finding Brown up by 5 with likely voters), now Brown is up by less than 1%.  Obama’s 16% lead is up 5% versus...

Elizabeth Warren is down in the latest poll, so it seems she has decided to double-down on the war on women theme, running radio ads complaining about Todd Akin and national Republicans.

As part of this new theme, Warren also has launched a campaign theme called “Stop Talking” based on Scott Brown...

I joked the other day about Elizabeth Warren’s Mike Dukakis Tank moment.

Maybe tanking was the right word, because a PPP poll just released shows Warren 5 points behind and Warren’s negatives rising dramatically (emphasis mine):

PPP’s newest poll on the Massachusetts Senate race finds Scott Brown opening up a 5 point lead,...
