The Tea Party movement has elected their first senator.
Conservative Republican State Sen. Scott Brown has decisively won the special election for the Senate seat in Massachusetts long held by the late Ted Kennedy. Brown trounced Attorney General Martha Coakley and his election is a blow to the Democratic Senate super-majority and agenda. He has vowed to become the 41st vote to prevent President Obama's health care plan from moving forward.
The Boston Globe's live blog of the election HERE. With 90% of precincts reporting, Brown was ahead with 53%.
At about 9:13 ET, Coakley called Brown to concede.
The Senate Democratic majority is now 59. Sixty votes are needed to block filibusters.
