All is not (completely) lost: Scott Brown says he is pro-choice

Senator-Elect Scott Brown to "This Week": Women have the right to choose, "more moderate" on social issues




WASHINGTON --Republican Sen.-elect Scott Brown of Massachusetts says he opposes federal funding for abortions, but thinks women should have the right to choose whether to have one.

Brown tells ABC's "This Week" that he disagrees with his party's position that the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should be overturned.


Brown says the abortion question is one that's best handled by a woman, her family and her doctor. He also says more effort needs to go into reducing the number of abortions in the U.S.

Brown has said the GOP shouldn't take his vote for granted on every issue. He says he's fiscally conservative but more moderate on social issues.

Brown recently won the Senate seat long held by liberal Democrat Edward M. Kennedy, who died last summer.

I'm kind of at a loss for words.

Also: this is very short and appears to be snippets from an interview but no direct quotes. Apparently it's paraphrased from an interview to be released here soon. I'm a bit skeptical, but that's because I was so gobsmacked by this development in the first place.
