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.
He's treated like a rock star on the trail but is still behind Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen.
Critics of the president need a coherent alternative
What's the campaign filing equivalent of a Freudian slip?
Republicans tie fear of Ebola to fears about border security.
Brown has made border security an issue in his bid to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).
A clumsy debate answer put the former Massachusetts senator on the defensive.
In last hours before election, candidates display their divergent campaign strategies.
The chance of a GOP takeover in the Senate has led to squabbles on minor details, like geography lessons, potentially frivolous legal threats and whether Bob Dole was called a clown.
Political science at its finest.
