Harvard - Despite the snow that continued to fall throughout the day, 2,908 voters headed to the polls in Harvard to cast their ballots in the special election for state Senator, Tuesday.
Although Republican Scott Brown won the Massachusetts election for state Senator, Democrat Martha Coakley was the front runner in Harvard, garnering 1,568 votes, 263 votes more than Brown’s 1,305. Twenty-three votes were cast for Independent Joseph Kennedy.
Brown won the election by defeating Democrat Martha Coakley 52 percent to 47 percent. Coakley had a double-digit lead in polls just a few weeks ago.
“Tonight the independent majority has delivered a great victory,” Brown said in his victory speech at the Park Plaza.
As the nation’s 41st Republican senator, and the first Massachusetts Repbulican elected to the U.S. Senate since 1972, Brown pledged to work with both sides of the aisle to reform health care “in an open and honest way.”
“People do not want a trillion-dollar health care plan,” said Brown, a Wrentham state senator. “It will run our nation deeper into debt. We can do better.”
