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.

In last hours before election, candidates display their divergent campaign strategies.
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.).
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.
From the outset, Republicans had a simple plan: Don't make mistakes, and make it all about Obama.
