Martha Coakley was greeted by plenty of Scott Brown “stalkers” at events in Gloucester and Newburyport today. I was at both events. It is difficult to put into words the enthusiasm I witnessed today. The last time I can remember seeing anything like this was when the Red Sox won the World Series and people everywhere were fired up and wanted to express their excitement.

Gloucester Chamber of Commerce – 1:30 p.m.
There is only one way to get to Chamber which includes passing through a four-way intersection. There were Coakley supporters there, but they were outnumbered by the Brown Stalkers. At the Chamber, Coakley had to walk through a crowd of the aforementioned stalkers holding Brown signs, waving American flags and chanting “GO SCOTT BROWN.” She looked a tad rattled. When the event ended, Coakley left in her tinted window sedan to the same chants and crowds.

Coakley leaving – real woman of the people.
Michael’s Harborside Restaurant – Newburyport, 3:30 p.m.
My camera was acting funny here so I only got a few shots. The restaurant is on the harbor with a bridge looking down on it. Sea of Brown supporters on the bridge and at the entrance to the restaurant (where there were many empty parking spaces). The entrance is next to another intersection. Brown folks on all corners, honking, yelling, thumbs up in the hundreds. No Coakley sign holders to be found. Again, Coakley drove in, addressed the “crowd” inside and left without getting out to shake hands…in the cold.
These young ladies were so offended by Coakley’s negative campaign they made their own signs and joined their mom (pictured above on the right)
More to come if I can get this camera working again.
update: special thanks to the young Patriots who were canvasing Beverly Farms today and gave my husband a Scott Brown t-shirt! I will be wearing it with pride to the rally in Worcester tomorrow. You guys rock!
