State Sen. Scott Brown has pulled a Massachusetts miracle and has upset his Democratic rival to capture the open U.S. Senate seat by a 7 point margin.

Brown, 50, of Wrentham, will roll into Washington as the nation struggles with health-care reform. But Brown has vowed to be “the 41st Senator” that will defeat the measure.

Democrat Martha Coakley, the state’s attorney general, has gone down in defeat. Brown has won 53-46 percent, with more than half the precincts reporting.

We did it!  The people of Massachusetts sent a message to the corrupt hacks on Beacon Hill who have ruled with impunity and disdain for the citizens of the Commonwealth, to the elite, drunk with power, Democrats who look down on the people of this great country, ignore our will and wish to remake America into a socialist nanny state.  The message was clear: NOT ON OUR WATCH! 

Lets savor this victory tonight and tomorrow we continue the good fight.  That means you, Deval.



  1. Wonderful news! I was on tenterhooks all night. The best news since the wins in New Jersey and Virginia. Obama will draw the wrong conclusions – he is temperamentally in capable of moving to the center.

  2. woooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kill the bill! Make a commie cry!

  3. Congratulations, Mass.! I’m amazed, I’m flabbergasted, I never thought in my life I’d see a Republican win a Mass. Senate seat! This gives me a little bit of hope that we can turn things around out her, too.

    Now, can someone please calm down long enough to clone Scott Brown for us?

  4. Well done Loppy! I think that Spitfire Murphy was the first site to tell the world that an upset might be in the offing.

    • I thought about that, being a proud Natick exile. Then I remembered 3 Super Bowls all the NBA Banners and two recent World Series. So couldn’t say it was the first time.

  5. Congratulations from California!! This was the most exciting thing I’ve witnessed in a very long time. I’m from Massachusetts originally and I’ve always been proud of that and I miss it a lot, just sayin’

    And kudos to loppyd, who did her utmost to make this wonderful day happen!
