Candidate Profile |
Scott Brown is hoping to win his first full six-year term to the U.S. Senate, no easy task for a Republican in a state more used to electing Democrats.
Brown, who won a special election in 2010 to fill the seat left vacant by the death of long-term Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy, is facing a tough challenge from Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard University law professor who made a name for herself as a consumer advocate.
Brown, who remains popular in Massachusetts, is trying to maintain that likeability while also portraying Warren as out of touch with ordinary voters.
What's the campaign filing equivalent of a Freudian slip?
He's treated like a rock star on the trail but is still behind Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen.
Political science at its finest.

A President Romney would have handled the crisis better, said the Senate candidate.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen accused Republican challenger Scott Brown of grandstanding and fear mongering while he accused her of "outsourcing" her independence as they met for their second debate two weeks before Election Day.
The GOP has actually been in the ballgame for each of the last four major statewide campaigns.
Brown has made border security an issue in his bid to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).
The Senate map remains very fluid.
Republicans are playing lots of defense. But they have seized on some key offensive opportunities, too.
