Democrat Elizabeth Warren defeated U.S. Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts, ousting the Republican who won the seat in a special election two years ago.
Brown shocked the political establishment in 2010 when he won the special election by tapping into dissent over President Barack Obama’s health-care law. Senator Edward Kennedy held the seat for almost 47 years before his death.
Warren is a Harvard University professor who helped Obama establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau created by the Wall Street regulatory overhaul.
Brown emphasized his independence from the Republican Party in a state dominated by Democrats. Brown, a former state senator in Massachusetts who was a model before he became a lawyer, sought to appeal to Obama supporters by featuring images of himself with the president in some ads.
Warren gained star status in her party by attacking Wall Street. Democrats gave her a prime-time speaking role at their national convention. She attacked Brown for voting against a measure making it easier for women to sue for equal pay, health insurance coverage for birth control, and one of Obama’s Supreme Court nominees.
