US Sen. Brown launches contest to lure donors

Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown has come up with a contest offer to help lure donors to his U.S. Senate reelection campaign. It's called "a day with Scott Brown."

"A day with Scott Brown" offers one person a chance to spend a day with the candidate on the campaign trail. The campaign says the winner would "ride with Scott in his truck," grab a roast beef lunch, hit the campaign trail, and squeeze in a round of bowling before finishing the day with a beer at an Irish pub.

No campaign contribution is required to win. But the campaign is encouraging donations, starting at $10.

The candidate and his chief Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren are locked in what could be the costliest Senate race in Massachusetts history.
