Scott Philip Brown is the Republican junior United States Senator from Massachusetts who came out of nowhere to win the Senate seat vacated when Senator Ted Kennedy died.

Before his election, he served as a member of the Massachusetts General Court, first in the State House of Representatives (1998–2004) and then in the State Senate (2004–2010).

Scott became the first Republican elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts since Edward Brooke in 1972 and the first Republican from Massachusetts to serve in the U.S. Congress in any capacity since 1997.

Brown is a graduate of Wakefield High School, Tufts University, and Boston College Law School.
