Scott Brown Will Narrowly Make Tonight's Debate After Senate Votes in D.C.
"People have sent me down here -- and that’s to vote,” Brown said in an interview with the Boston Globe when there was the possibility Thursday that he could not make it back to Boston for Thursday night's debate.
For a time on Thursday, there was a possibility that U.S. Senator Scott Brown may not have made it to tonight's debate in Boston versus challenger Elizabeth Warren due to a scheduling conflict in Washington.
Brown told the Boston Globe that if there are senate votes scheduled through the rest of the afternoon, 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.
At 4 p.m., WBZ tweeted that Brown has had boarded a plane and was en route to Boston. He will be at tonight's debate.
Earlier on Thursday, Brown said that if he did not make the debate "we’ll reschedule it for Monday or something.”
