Democrat candidate Elizabeth Warren defeats Republican candidate Scott Brown in one of the most hotly contested election in Massachusetts senate race on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 as reported on Wednesday by Washington Post.
Warren gets ahead in the polls over the last few weeks proving herself to be a popular figure with Democrats across the country. Reports said that Warren is the first woman to be elected U.S. senator from Massachusetts.
The 63 year-old Warren led Brown by 8 percentage points, 54 percent to 46 percent with 91 percent of the precincts reporting.
“This victory belongs to you. You did this for every family that has been squeezed and hammered. We are going to fight for a level playing field and we are going to put people back to work. To all the small-business owners who are tired of a system rigged against them, we’re going to hold the big guys accountable.” Warren was quoted saying in a report to a raucous and jam-packed crowd at her headquarters in Boston.
“I will always carry your stories in my heart. I won’t just be your senator. I will be your champion.” she added.
Meanwhile, Brown said at the Boston Park Plaza hotel, just blocks from where Warren celebrated her victory that “defeat is only temporary” giving a strong hint in his concession speech that he might make another run for office.
