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.
Shaheen is still popular; Brown is not.

In a nation weary of war, yet alarmed by the prospect of an emerging threat, President Barack Obama's plan to strike Islamic State militants is ruffling the usual left-right politics in several races that will decide control of the Senate.
Does Cory Gardner lead by eight in Colorado and Joni Ernst by six in Iowa? Probably not.
Might want to pick a different anecdote next time.

Former Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Scott Brown won New Hampshire's Republican U.S. Senate primary on Tuesday, moving forward in his attempt to get back to Washington from another state.
Questions about campaign success and fundraising largely miss the point.
