Massachusetts Senator-elect Scott Brown's election victory is expected to be certified today, February 4, 2010. The election certification could allow him to be sworn in as early as this afternoon and assume his elected seat in the Senate.
Sen.-elect Brown, who's victory in the Massachusetts special elections change the game slightly in DC by shifting the Democrats control in the Senate from a 60 to 40 majority to a 59 - 41 majority may not change the game to much after all. The Republicans can now filibuster but will the Democrats gain new traction and forward momentum as the nation is given more and more insight into the Republicans reversals on issue after issue?
Just how many Republican conservatives have tried to marry off there daughters as fast as they could during a victory speech?
Only Sen.-elect Brown that I can think of for that move too.
How many true conservatives have wives that have been in music videos showing off there prowess of working with there hands? No really the song was called "The Girl With the Curious Hand"
And having your daughter on American Idol - in-front of as many F- viewers as possible - I wonder how much that one cost the Brown family and would that be a tax right off since it would have been money spent in a campaigning manner? It was a great marketing tool at least. This one may become one of the main tools in the Republican get the vote out arsenal.
The spokesman for the Massachusetts Secretary of State, Brian McNiff has announced that the final election returns from last month's special election were delivered to the governor's office yesterday. Sen.-elect Brown has asked for immediate certification.
In a letter to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Secretary of State William Galvin, Brown's attorney says the Republican senator-elect had planned on being sworn in on February 11, but he has been told that several Senate votes will be held before then.
"For this reason, he wants certification to occur immediately," attorney Daniel Winslow wrote.
Sen. Al Franken would have enjoyed that as well, and for the same reasons I am sure.
