Former Lt. Governor Kerry Healey, who was thought to be considering a Senate run early on, announced she was endorsing fellow Republican Scott Brown.
“Scott Brown knows that you don’t create jobs by making government bigger, letting spending get out of control and increasing taxes,” said Healey, in a statement. “Scott has been a leader in the never-ending battle to restrain state spending, and that is exactly the kind of leadership we need in Washington right now.”
Healey also said that she worked closely with Brown when she was lieutenant governor under Mitt Romney: “The Massachusetts taxpayer has a great friend in Scott Brown and he was a solid ally in our efforts to balance the budget and create new jobs.”
“I am proud to have the support of Kerry Healey, who is a strong fiscal conservative with a record of opposing taxes and higher spending,” said Brown, responding, in a statement.
Brown (Wrentham) is in his third term as a State Senator.
