Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), who shocked the political world by capturing the seat left vacant by late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), will be packing up his D.C. office after losing to Elizabeth Warren.

With 35 percent of precincts reporting, Brown trailed Warren 52.4 percent to 47.6 percent.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau founder and Harvard law professor Warren got a nice bounce from the Democratic National Convention, where she had a high-profile speaking slot.

Warren earned the nickname “Fauxcahontas” from conservative bloggers for claiming Cherokee heritage, for which Brown criticized her in their debate.

Brown was consistently trying to convince votes on the trail in the blue state of his independence from the GOP in the upper chamber. He has voted with Republicans about three-quarters of the time in his Senate career.
