Sen. Scott Brown surprise at CPAC 

Newly elected Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts surprised CPAC attendees this afternoon by making an unexpected appearence to introduce one of his favorite supporters, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

"I'm Scott Brown and I'm the newly elected Republican senator from Massachusetts!" he said to a roar of applause, "My truck is parked outside," he added.

Flashing his conservative credentials, he noted that, "for the big government spenders, I'm sure my election does not make them feel good at all." and added, "for all those who are interested in restoring real checks and balances in Washington and bringing accountability and transparency back to our government, it feels wonderful, like a new day dawning."

Brown noted that Romney was one of his greatest supporters.

"I was called a sacrificial lamb . . . the longest of long shots . . . a one in a million chance," he said, "In the beginning I could have held a campaign rally in a phone booth."

Romney was 'one of the guys from the phone booth' he added, and called him one of the 'bright lights' of the conservative movement.

"If you want to fix our broken economy, let me give you a piece of advice: Listen to Mitt Romney."
