Western MA Brown supporters disappointed

Posted: Updated:

News of Elizabeth Warren's U.S. Senate victory did not sit well with Sen. Scott Brown supporters. Once the alert came out that Warren was the winner, there was a hush over the crowd at the East Mountain Country Club.

"Scott has done an amazing job in his short two-year term," said state Rep. Don Humason.

But the two years will be all Brown gets. Humason was in attendance at a Republican watching party Tuesday evening.  He said both Brown and Warren should be proud.

"You have got to have thick skin to be in politics," said Humason.  "Both ran an honorable campaign."

With Tuesday night's result, Republicans in attendance had concerns that their voices may not be heard.

"I think it will be business as usual," said Christopher Miller, a Brown supporter.  "For the past 20 years or so, we have had a dual-democratic leadership.  I think it will be more of the same."

Humason told CBS 3 he hoped Warren will be an independent voice and not just fall in line with other Democrats.
