Republicans, Sen. Scott Brown win battle but not war

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown was sworn in on the floor of the Senate by Vice President Joe Biden Feb. 4.

Jan. 19 was the day that Senator Brown became the first Republican senator from Massachusetts since 1972.

He announced his intentions to fill the slot of the late Ted Kennedy on Sept. 12, 2008, which was coincidentally his 50th birthday.
