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.
