US Senator Scott Brown Endorses Kirsten Hughes for MassGOP Chair

by: BNCordeiro

Fri Dec 07, 2012 at 16:51:01 PM EST


In addition to Rick Green's statement of candidacy, which Rob already published, I received this MassGOP Chairman election related email in my inbox earlier today.

Senator Scott Brown has endorsed, Kirsten Hughes, his campaign's deputy finance director, for the office of Chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party.

December 7, 2012

Dear State Committee Members,

I cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you devoted to our campaign and to our Party this past election cycle.  As State Committee members, much is asked of you and you never fail to come through - whether it is supporting a campaign for the state legislature, Governor, Congress or U.S. Senate.

As you know, Chairman Bob Maginn has decided to not seek reelection.  I want to thank Bob for his dedication and commitment to our Party, and for his very capable leadership of our state party during the past year.  I am excited for Bob's future role in the 2014 election cycle.

With Bob's departure, I am writing to you today to endorse Kirsten Hughes for Chair of the Massachusetts Republican Party.  

Kirsten has been a leader in our Party for several years, devoting enormous time and energy to help Republican candidates win elections.  What I find especially compelling about Kirsten is the breadth of her political experience.

Kirsten knows what it takes to run and win election to local office.  Earlier this year, Kirsten beat the odds when she won a seat on the Quincy City Council.  In her race, she demonstrated leadership, tenacity, and political know-how to defeat her Democratic opponent.

As a local candidate herself, Kirsten understands and appreciates the role local Party committees and volunteers play in a strong party and in winning campaigns.  She began her own political career as a grassroots activist, stuffing envelopes and knocking on doors for then-Governor Bill Weld.  

Kirsten's commitment to our party led her to serve as Political Field Director for the MassGOP in 2010 when we doubled the number of GOP representatives in the House.  Kirsten has also proven herself an adept fundraiser, most recently serving as Deputy Finance Director for my campaign, and helping us to raise $42 million which as you know is more money than any other Republican campaign for U.S. Senate in the country in 2012, and the most in Massachusetts GOP history.

Speaking from experience, I know our farm team is the key to our Party's future, and that starts with recruiting and developing candidates at the local level.  Kirsten's success and firsthand experience with local grassroots building, raising campaign funds, and organizing and winning local campaigns gives her the skills that we need to make our candidates competitive up and down the ballot.  In addition, she has a wonderful relationship with my major donors, who as you know raised almost millions of dollars for the party to help fund the GOP's largest ever field and turnout operation with 35 offices, staff salaries, phones, technology and get-out-the-vote programs.

I ask that you join me today in supporting Kirsten Hughes for Chair of the Massachusetts Republican Party.  Her energy, enthusiasm, experience and dedication to Republican ideas makes her the ideal person to stand up to the Beacon Hill machine, and lead our Party into a brighter future in the years ahead.

Sincerely,

Scott Brown

U.S. Senato

Bob Maginn, part deux? (0.00 / 1)
Can we afford to have another chair so closely tied to a particular candidate?  I'd rather not see the MassGOP be nothing more than the Scott Brown show.

Scott Brown can't endorse someone? (0.00 / 0)
Without it becoming the Scott Brown show? Wasn't Maginn more of a Romney bot anyway?
