BROWN SCORES UPSET VICTORY OVER COAKLEY IN MASSACHUSETTS SENATE RACE
In a victory few thought possible just a month ago, Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley Tuesday in the race for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy — a win that could grind President Obama’s agenda to a halt and portend unexpected losses for Democrats in the November midterms.
“This is amazing!! I can hardly believe what I am watching because Scott Brown is a Republican and the last time there was a Republican senator from Massachusetts was in 1978, when Senator Edward Brooke, lost his bid for a third term. This is a very loud and clear message to Washington DC (especially the White House) that the people of America have had enough of President Obama’s socialist progressive agenda.”
The race for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy is a win that could grind President Obama’s agenda to a halt and portend unexpected losses for Democrats in the November midterms.
In his victory speech, Brown declared that he had “defied the odds and the pundits,” and said he would try to be a “worthy successor” to Kennedy.
“Tonight, the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken,” Brown said. “This Senate seat belongs to no one person, no one political party. … This is the people’s seat.”
With nearly all precincts reporting, returns showed Brown leading Coakley 52-47 percent, by a margin of 120,000 votes. Independent candidate Joseph Kennedy was pulling 1 percent.
The victory marks a stunning upset in a race thought to be safe for Democrats until Brown’s campaign began to surge just weeks ago. Even Brown appeared a bit in shock by his victory. Visibly giddy during his remarks, Brown went script and at one point offering up his daughters to the dating circuit — and later he earned supporters’ laughter by flubbing his campaign pitch line, “I’m Scott Brown. I’m from Wrentham. And I drive a truck.” (more)
