Recent statements involving Brendan Doherty

Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown shows someone can be bipartisan in Congress because he "votes about 66 percent with his own party."

"David Cicilline was the state representative who opposed tough mandatory sentences for those convicted of domestic violence  and child abuse."

 "Congressman Cicilline, when he was the mayor of Providence, espoused a sanctuary city."

Brendan Doherty wants "to repeal Obamacare, increasing drug prices for seniors."

"The Doherty Campaign, unlike the Cicilline Campaign, is funded mostly by individual donors -- not the big PACs that Cicilline relies on."
