Elizabeth Warren declares victory.

BOSTON, Ma. -- Democrat Elizabeth Warren unseated Republican Incumbent Scott Brown, making her the first woman to represent the Bay State in the U.S. Senate. Brown, who replaced Ted Kennedy in 2010, lost to Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren in the costliest senate race ever.

The campaign centered around healthcare, jobs, and higher education. Warren said it was the people's victory, and promised to fight for young people, women, and middle class families.

"This victory belongs to you, you did this. For every family that has been chipped at, squeezed and hammered, we're going to fight for a level playing field, and we're going to put people back to work," said Warren in her victory speech. "For all the small business owners who are tired of a system rigged against them, we're going to hold the big guys accountable."

Senator Elect Warren thanked Senator Brown for his service, but said they spoke, and that he sent his congratulations.

"May she bring the senate office great credit, just as I set out to do three years ago. I said in the very beginning, back when we first started this trek, back in January, that we'd run a race we could all be proud of," said Brown in his concession speech.

Senator John Kerry also appeared with Warren and said he's lost a race, and it's not fun, and he thanked Senator Brown and his family for all of their efforts.

Republican Incumbent Scott Brown lost to Democrat Elizabeth Warren on Election Night. Here is his speech.
