Brown campaign's Huff ads target female voters
BOSTON (AP)-- Former Boston-area television reporter Gail Huff has returned to Massachusetts airwaves, this time to aid in her husband Sen. Scott Brown's re-election bid.
In ads rolled-out earlier this month, Huff speaks about her relationship and family life with Brown, who is running against Democrat Elizabeth Warren to keep his seat.
But political consultants disagree over whether the ads will be successful in capturing the coveted female vote.
Republican consultant Patrick Griffin said the ads give the Senator authenticity and show he is less conservative than other members of his party. But Mary Anne Marsh, a Democratic consultant, said Brown's voting record and stance on the issues will matter more to female voters than his family life.
Huff now works as a television reporter in Washington, D.C.
