Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown is scheduled to hit the campaign trail in Connecticut to stump for fellow Republican Linda McMahon in a closely watched U.S. Senate race.
Brown is expected to join McMahon at a rally in Milford Saturday afternoon. It will be McMahon’s first visit from a nationally known politician in the campaign.
McMahon, the former chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment, is locked in a tight race with Democratic state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Christopher Dodd.
Brown, a one-time tea party favorite, won the late Senator Edward Kennedy’s seat in Democratic-dominated Massachusetts last January.
