BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Scott Brown says he’s given up drinking throughout his long reelection campaign.
Brown said Friday during an interview that he won’t be drinking alcohol until the night of the election in November.
Brown said he’s not had a beer or any other alcoholic drink since Jan 1, opting instead for soft drinks like Coca-Cola.
During the interview, Brown called the decision “one of those New Year’s things” that he did “on a stupid bet.”
Brown’s campaign office declined to offer additional details about Brown’s decision to give up drinking during the campaign to retain his senate seat.
