U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, a Republican running for Oklahoma governor, seemed to like what she saw last night in Massachusetts, where Republican Scott Brown won a U.S. Senate seat held by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.
“Scott Brown’s historic win tonight is yet another sign that voters across America are tired of the kind of policies that put big government first and the interests of the people last. In his short time as president, Barack Obama and other liberals have dramatically increased the national deficit, pursued an unpopular government-takeover of the health care industry and proposed a series of initiatives that ignore the real concerns of working Americans. Tonight’s election should be taken as a sign that voters are looking for principled, conservative alternatives to the old tax and spend, big government policies pushed on us by Washington and liberals around the country.
“I think 2010 is going to be a great year for the conservative movement, and a difficult one for those politicians who chose to support President Obama and his policies.”
