MAF Freedom PAC Endorses Scott Brown for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts Special Election

MAF Freedom PAC, the nation’s largest pro-troop, grassroots organization, today gave its full endorsement and support to Scott Brown in the special election race in Massachusetts to fill the Ted Kennedy U.S. Senate seat.

Scott Brown has been committed to our troops and demonstrated that he understands the importance of our missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a veteran of the U.S Army National Guard where he holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

“Scott Brown is the kind of leader that we need in Washington immediately. He will bring the experience and leadership that we need when it comes to national security, our military and the war on terror” said Shawn Callahan, executive director of Move America Forward. “He has served our country admirably as Lt. Col. in the Army National Guard and shares the same beliefs as MAF in that we should keep Gitmo open, oppose the transfer of terrorists to U.S. soil, and that the current administration is not taking the war on terrorism as serious as they should be.”

In contrast, Brown’s opponent Martha Coakley has stated that she opposes the decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, supports the closure of Gitmo, the transfer of terrorist prisoners to the U.S. and an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

“Martha Coakley doesn’t understand our troops; she doesn’t understand our mission; and like Obama seems to value the terrorist’s rights even more than our own national security. She believes they should be given the constitutional rights that only a U.S citizen deserves!”

A poll by Public Policy Polling (PPP), a Democratic survey firm, shows Scott Brown has overtaken Martha Coakley, and holds a 48 percent to 47 percent lead as the Jan. 19 special election approaches.

What many once believe to be impossible, the Republican Scott Brown has a legitimate shot at knocking off the Democratic candidate Martha Coakley and MAF Freedom PAC is dedicated to help this happen.
