The Shot Heard 'Round The Nation

The people have spoken, and Wrentham State Senator Scott Brown is now heading to Washington as the Commonwealth's next U.S. Senator. Brown proved all the doubters and naysayers wrong by claiming a decisive margin of victory and capturing 52 percent of the statewide vote in yesterday's special election to fill the seat once held by the late Senator Edward Kennedy.

Brown's victory was one for the history books: not only is he the first Republican to be elected as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts since 1972, but he's also the first Republican to hold the seat since Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. lost his U.S. Senate re-election campaign in 1952 to a young John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

All of us here are Scaling The Hill 2010 congratulate Senator Brown on his successful campaign, and know that he will be an effective representative for all Massachusetts residents on Capitol Hill.
