Former US senator Scott Brown & band to play at GOP state convention

Brown and tax expert Grover Norquist featured speakers

Former U.S. Senator and Ambassador to New Zealand Scott Brown is a confirmed guest for Vermont Republican Party full-day State Convention Saturday November 18 at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Burlington.

Ambassador Brown first rose to national fame when he became the first Republican in 30 years to represent the state of Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate after the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy. When congress was considering a massive overhaul of the healthcare system, Sen. Brown’s win in a special election changed the trajectory of the Affordable Care Act.

Later in 2017 Brown was appointed by the President to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, where he became one of the longest tenured ambassadors of the Trump administration.

Ambassador Brown now also leads a band, “Scott Brown & the Diplomats” which will be playing at the convention’s after-party later in the evening. The band plays a variety of classic rock cover songs from the 60s through the 90s.
