Elizabeth Warren Holding Rally in Braintree on Sunday

Braintree High School will host the event two days before the election.

Two days before voters across the state decide whether to re-elect Sen. Scott Brown or send Elizabeth Warren to Washington, Braintree will host a campaign rally for the Democratic challenger.

The Warren campaign has rented the Braintree High School gymnasium on Sunday, Nov. 4 for an event that kicks-off at 1 p.m. Braintree Public Schools Business Manager Peter Kress confirmed the rental on Thursday night.

Warren is expected to arrive at about 1:30 p.m, Kress said. She previously held a public event in Braintree at Local 369's Emerald Hall in April. During that appearance, Warren, a Harvard University professor, spoke about her humble roots as the daughter of a maintenance man and the quality of life that comes with investing in research and infrastructure.

Brown, a former state legislator, won a special election to fill deceased Sen. Ted Kennedy's seat in 2009. He took the vote in Braintree over Democrat Martha Coakley 62 percent to 37 percent.

The Republican Senator also has a fundraising advantage locally, having raised $16,105 in itemized contributions from Braintree residents through Sept. 30, compared to just $2,079 for Warren, according to an analysis of the Federal Elections Commission database.

Ms Ward, I suggest you keep your negative opinions to yourself. From Wikipedia: Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, traducement, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation a negative or inferior image. I personally like Ms Warren, and I suggest you talk to your Brown-loving chums if you don't agree. We knowledgeable and educated and informed people like Warren!!!

Oh please kj stevens there are numerous problems with that idea. One, it's not defamation because no direct attack was made. Accusation of lying itself cannot be falsified because it is not a known falsehood. It is an inference. Only known falsehoods with intent to damage an entity are defamation. I do not believe a simple implication would go that far, especially considering some of the ads made against Warren. The second problem is you got your info from WIKIPEDIA which has no credibility. The third is that intelligence has no role in pollitical choice as those decisions are based on opinion not intelligence. Finally, this is an open commenting forum where varying opinions are expressed and that should be expected to be seen. If you don't like that then stay off these sorts of places on the Internet.
