Brown has written a letter to his list of Hawaii donors for Honolulu City Council member Charles Djou, the Republican candidate in the state’s 1st Congressional District. Brown will also travel to southwestern Pennsylvania this month in support of businessman Tim Burns’s campaign for that state’s 12th District seat. Brown will appear at two events for Burns on May 14: a fundraiser in Canonsburg, Pa., and a rally in Washington, Pa.
“While his focus remains on his official Senate responsibilities and serving the people of Massachusetts, Senator Brown has a unique understanding of the dynamics of special elections,” said his communications director, Gail Gitcho.
National Republicans view the Pennsylvania race on May 18 and the Hawaii contest four days later as ripe opportunities to capture two seats held by Democrats and build momentum for the November midterm elections.
