Just got an e-mail from Bill Hagerty:
Today’s’ result showed that another miracle in Massachusetts was possible. Mitt won the governor’s seat there when, theoretically, no Republican could be elected. Mitt won because the State of Massachusetts was in need of a massive turnaround – deeply in debt and no light on the horizon. Scott Brown won the seat tonight with our nation in similar straits – desperately in need of a vote to stop the rapid encroachment of Washington on our day-to-day lives.
Scott achieved this victory with the help of Mitt’s campaign manager, Beth Myers, and Mitt’s communications brain trust, Eric Fehrnstrom. Mitt’s PAC provided Scott the seed money and even the office space to start his campaign — and the return on investment has been extraordinary . . . Tune in tonight and you’ll see Mitt introduce the next Senator from Massachusetts.
This result marks an inflection point in US politics. The role that you played in helping Mitt obtain the clout to help effect this change on Washington cannot be understated. Tonight’s results demonstrate the long range effect of the investments you’ve made on Mitt’s behalf.
Thank you for what you have done . . . and stayed tuned.
UPDATE: I just turned on Fox News — I saw the Governor get a handshake from the new Senator, but I couldn’t see much of anything else. On a night like this, it’s obvious that the former venture capitalist still knows how to pick ‘em.
