"People have sent me down here -- and that’s to vote,” Brown said in an interview with the Boston Globe.

Brown told the Boston Globe that if there are senate votes scheduled through the rest of the afternooon, he would have to miss the debate. "Voting is 'the one thing that I can’t delegate to the staff,' he told the Globe. 'I’ve only missed one vote.' Brown told the Globe he would attempt to make a 4:30 p.m. plane so he could make it to WBZ studios by 7 p.m. for the flight. But he said his first priority is to vote. “If we’ve got votes, I’ll make them,” Brown was quoted as saying. “I’m sure if we don’t make [the debate] tonight, we’ll reschedule it for Monday or something.”
The two candidates will meet tonight (Thursday) in their first televised debate at WBZ studios. The debate begins at 7 p.m. on Channel 4.
The U.S. Senate race is very close, according to a spate of recent polls. Three polls show that Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is in the lead among likely voters in November, but the latest poll, conducted this week, predicts a Brown victory by several points. Neither candidate has established a large enough lead so far as to pull ahead of the polls' margins of error, meaning the highly competitive Massachusetts race will likely stay close until election day in November. The latest poll is by the University of Massachusetts Lowell/Boston Herald, which was released on Wednesday night. Out of 524 voters surveyed from Sept. 13 to 17, 49 percent said they would vote for Brown versus 45 percent who said they would support Warren. The …

Sanchez: "This community should speak loud and clear that this type of behavior is unacceptable."
We have now gotten notice that at least four (Sen. Scott) Brown signs have been either stolen or trashed. One was at my own home. This is a disgrace; there are some people who oppose Mr. Brown and have no respect for free speech rights. Town committees should make it clear that this behavior is intolerable. Last election cycle, I also had a sign for Ned Price. A car actually drove onto my property at night and destroyed the sign - twice. Car marks were left behind. This community should speak loud and clear that this type of behavior is unacceptable. Nicolas Sanchez Framingham

A day after Elizabeth Warren visited a sewer construction project in Framingham, Sen. Scott Brown toured a bank construction project in Framingham.
U.S. Senator Scott Brown brought his Thank You For Building This Tour to Framingham on Friday morning, a day after his challenger Elizabeth Warren was in Framingham visiting a sewer project in Saxonville. Brown told reporters this election will be won on jobs. Brown said the jobs numbers are dismal. "These aren't better than expected to me." The Republican said his Democratic challenger should not be comparing America to China and that her infrastructure push is not the right message for the United States and will cost America money and jobs. Brown brought Dunkin Donuts and coffee to a Commodore Builders crew working on the soon-to-be open Northeast Community Bank at 85 Edgell Rd. The bank is expected to open in September.
