The choice between Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren and Republican incumbent Scott Brown also is dramatic. Warren supports the tax and economic policies of Pres. Obama and the Democrats, while Brown favors Romney’s tax and defense spending plans (see above).

On the social issues, Warren is pro-choice and pro-gay marriage. Although Brown says he too, supports both, when he was asked at a debate who his favorite Supreme Court justice was, he mentioned Antonin Scalia, who has voiced the view that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. So while Brown says he is pro-choice, he clearly will be another vote for a Romney Supreme Court appointee if Romney should win.

In short, the contrast between what Warren and Brown offer Massachusetts voters is clear. But your choice must be made known at the ballot box.
