Mass Votes! #massen #coakley #scottbrown
As we know now Scott Brown is the winner of the MA election to fill Senator Kennedy’s seat. I will be running more commentary throughout the day to show just how the media is portraying this. Here at Defend Your Vote — we are concerned with the issues of the people and whether or not politicians are providing all their constituents there best.

This election Massachusetts will decide who will take over Former Senator Kennedy’s seat in the US Senate. This is a national election, and in many ways the voices of the anger towards the current conditions of the country (high unemployment, government bailouts, higher taxes) are being expressed with a surprise surge from Republican Scott Brown. Many are angered over current health care legislation from the White House. Could we see an upset victory or will Coackley squeak out a winner?
