TIGHT RACE

Brown, Warren Deadlocked in Mass.

Despite Sen. Paul Ryan’s attempts to paint his most likely Democratic adversary as a “Harvard elitist,” he and Elizabeth Warren are virtually deadlocked, according to a new Boston Globe poll. Massachusetts residents seem to find both of them appealing—37 percent in favor of Brown, 35 percent leaning toward Warren—while 26 percent remain undecided. Brown is leading among voters who consider themselves independents, but Warren has attracted conservative and moderate Democrats, a group that helped elect Brown to the Senate in 2010.
