U.S. Sen. Scott Brown stepped off a campaign bus to an enthusiastic crowd at Johnny Jacks Restaurant Thursday, where he met with local residents, officials and police.
The senator kicked off a bus tour, the "People Over Party" tour, with the stop in Milford, where he also picked up an endorsement from the local police union.
He traveled with Maine Sen. Susan Collins. The campaign also was expected to make a stop later in the morning in Grafton.
Brown is running for election to a full term in the U.S. Senate. He was elected in 2009 in a special election, taking the place of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. This year, he faces as opponent Elizabeth Warren, a professor at Harvard University Law School.
The race is among the most expensive in the country and is being closely followed by national media.
