Vote the person, not the party

Massachusetts's Republican Senator distances himself from Romney in campaign

Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown is casting himself as an independent Republican voice and Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren says she'll guarantee women equal pay as the nation's costliest Senate contest races toward an Election Day finale. But for all of the cash and careful messaging, the result could hinge on which campaign is better organized to turn out voters.

"I've kept my promise to be an independent voice. I put people ahead of politics and now I need your help to keep that independent tradition alive in Massachusetts," Mr. Brown says in his final ad, which features him embracing voters and driving his pickup truck. But it avoids any mention of Mr. Brown's party affiliation.

While Massachusetts is home to fellow Republican Mitt Romney - whose campaign Mr. Brown has endorsed - the only image of a presidential candidate in the 60-second ad is Democrat Barack Obama. The president holds a commanding lead over Mr. Romney in the state.

The ad closes: "Vote the person, not the party."

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
