  • Scott Philip Brown is an American lawyer and politician. He is a former United States Senator from Massachusetts. Prior to his term in the Senate, Brown served as a member of the Massachusetts General Court, first in the State House of Representatives and then in the State Senate. Brown served 35 years in the Army National Guard, retiring in 2014 with the rank of Colonel. Brown is a member of the Republican Party, and faced the Democratic candidate, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, in the 2010 special election to succeed U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy for the remainder of the term ending January 3, 2013. While initially trailing Coakley in polling by a large margin, Brown saw a sudden late surge in the polls and posted a surprise win to become the first Republican elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts since Edward Brooke in 1972. Brown ran for a full Senate term in 2012, but lost to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren. He subsequently joined the board of directors of Kadant paper company, joined Fox News as a commentator, and joined Nixon Peabody where he provided legal services.
