Scott Brown Loses Senate Race In Massachusetts


BOSTON— Democrat Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard law professor and bankruptcy expert who has spent her career documenting the decline of middle-class America, won the hotly contested Senate race in Massachusetts on Tuesday night, defeating Republican incumbent Scott Brown and reclaiming the seat held for decades by liberal icon Edward M. Kennedy.

Warren, who rose to national prominence as chair of the congressional panel overseeing the 2008 Wall Street bailout, is the first woman to be elected U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

“This victory belongs to you,” she told a raucous and jam-packed crowd at her headquarters in Boston. “You did this for every family that has been squeezed and hammered. We are going to fight for a level playing field and we are going to put people back to work. To all the small-business owners who are tired of a system rigged against them, we’re going to hold the big guys accountable.”

“I will always carry your stories in my heart,” Warren said. “I will be your champion.”

Just moments earlier, Brown, a pickup truck-driving Republican who stunned the political establishment by winning a special election after Kennedy’s death, conceded the race to Warren.  Read more....

Local Connection

By Janice Hancharick
November 2010
Readers who watched Tuesday's election results for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by Ted Kennedy's passing, probably didn't realize that Scott Brown of Massachusetts has local roots. His father, Bruce Brown, spent his youth in the Shinglehouse area and graduated from Oswayo Valley in the 1950's.

While Bruce's life's path took him from our region long ago, having found success in many venues in Massachusetts, he still returns to Shinglehouse at least once a year to renew old friendships and visit family. It is this kind of connection that keeps the now Senatorial Brown family of Massachusetts in touch with the people outside of their state ... in touch with issues that concern all U.S. citizens.

Scott Brown, Massachusett's newest Senator and son of Bruce Brown, may seem to possess long roots from PA ... yet he proved on Tuesday that he's interested in more than just what party voters of his state want when he declared himself the "people's Senator".

He won by addressing the issues of health care reform, people's pocketbooks, and terrorism.

She's going to be a tiger for the middle class and little people. And she'll hold that seat tighter than a Kennedy. (R) have our work cut out for us there.

I wanted RR to win but I've always liked the way this woman stood up to the banks and the fat cats.
