If Republican Scott Brown has his way on January 19th, the SHTF for democrats in the Senate, as they stand to lose their super majority.
“With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy seat and it’s not the democrat seat, it’s the peoples’ seat and they have a chance to send someone down there who’s going to be an independent voter and an indepedent thinker and going to look out for the best interest of the people of Massachusetts.”
As of last week Brown trailed democrat candidate and Attorney General Martha Coakley 50% to 39% in the polls. In a state that President Obama carried by 23 points, Brown seems to have closed the gap, signaling a shift in popularity for the Democrat Party since the 2008 election.
Slowing down the momentum of the democrat controlled Senate would be a welcome change in Washington D.C.
