With just four days until the November 6th election, former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani campaigned in the North End with Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown as part of his “People Before Party” bus tour.
As part of the campaign stop, the politicians talked with residents, business owners and visitors to Boston’s North End followed closely by a mass of press and media. This is not the first time that Guiliani has campaigned with Brown in the neighborhood. In 2010, the former NYC mayor was here to support Brown in the race where he won against Martha Coakley to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat.
Accompanied by wife Gail Huff, Brown and Guiliani held an event early Friday afternoon at Mother Anna’s Restaurant and then walked down Hanover Street toward the Prado, next to the statue of Paul Revere.
Brown, a Republican, is in a tight race in Massachusetts for the U.S. Senate seat against Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren. Her supporters were also present on Hanover Street today and have been holding regular North End standouts. Warren herself was last seen publicly in the North End during the St. Anthony’s Feast. Brown also recently held an event at Stanza di Signari a few weeks ago and visited the St. Joseph’s Feast during the summer.
The North End continues to be a hot spot for political activity this year, especially for the close U.S. Senate race. See more coverage of both Brown and Warren’s recent campaign stops in the neighborhood.
