Polls close in Massachusetts

Voting over in special election to replace Sen. Ted Kennedy; we're awaiting results

Topics: 2010 Elections, War Room, Martha Coakley, Scott Brown,

It’s just past 8 p.m. EST, and so polls have closed in Massachusetts, where a special election to replace Sen. Ted Kennedy was held Tuesday. Nobody’s calling this one yet, because there are no exit polls — the media consortium that usually handles such things didn’t organize one this time around because Democrat Martha Coakley was initially expected to walk away with the race; now, Republican Scott Brown is the favorite.

Results are now rolling in, however, and, barring some big surprises or snafus, we’re likely to know the outcome within the next couple hours. War Room will be here to bring you all the news.
