Alexander Congratulates Massachusetts Senator-Elect Scott Brown

Posted on January 19, 2010

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) tonight issued the following statement on the election of Scott Brown to serve as Massachusetts’ next U.S. senator:

“Massachusetts voters have sent a clear message that the Democratic majority in Congress is not in touch with the American people and that we should restart the health care debate. Senator-elect Brown’s independent voice will help provide a much-needed check and balance to a Congress that has become dominated by runaway spending and partisan politics. I congratulate Senator-elect Brown for an historic victory.”
