Dawn Breaks over Marblehead

Scott Brown carried Marblehead (turnout: 69 percent) along with much of the North Shore.

The Salem News reports:

Brown won in nearly every North Shore community — several by double-digit margins — and captured a comfortable, 5 percent victory statewide.

The unlikely triumph over Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley, which figures to directly affect President Obama’s health care reform bill, puts a Republican in the seat long held by one of the Senate’s most liberal leaders, Ted Kennedy. Not since Beverly’s Henry Cabot Lodge held office from 1947 to 1953 has a Republican occupied that seat.
