Last night Republican Scott Brown beat Democrat Martha Coakley for the late Ted Kennedy’s open Senate seat by 5 points, exceeding all expectations and causing quite a stir not only among the Tea Party movement, but on Capitol Hill. This is the first time since 1972 that a Republican has taken a Massachusetts Senate seat, and the late surge of support was highly unexpected.
