BOSTON (WWLP) - At the Imperial Ballroom of the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Senator Scott Brown and his supporters are hoping they will have another electric atmosphere, like they did after his 2010 special election victory.
Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren have been battling for the seat the Republican has held for the last couple years, which was long occupied by the late Senator Ted Kennedy.
After defeating Democrat Martha Coakley in an upset victory in January of 2010, Brown became the first Republican senator from Massachusetts since Edward Brooke left office in 1979.
The Senator casted his ballot early Tuesday morning in his hometown of Wrentham, around the same time Warren casted hers in Cambridge.
The senate race in Massachusetts has been one of the closest, and is arguably one of the most important in the country tonight, as the results could swing the balance of power in the Senate.
