Jan. 20, 2010 -- A little-known GOP state senator from Massachusetts has humiliated the White House and plunged the national Democratic Party into a panic by capturing the Senate seat once held by liberal lion Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Scott Brown says he tapped into growing aggravation among voters to win, 52 percent to 47 percent, over Democrat Martha Coakley.
Brown's victory has a wide-ranging impact for national politics. It eliminates the Democrats' filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and puts President Obama's health-care reform plans on life support. It has also energized Republicans in the run-up to this year's midterm elections.
The reaction to the election has been coming from all sides, but our question to you today: Are You Surprised Scott Brown Won in Massachusetts?
