This is far, far, far from a typical election today in Massachusetts. A Scott Brown (R) voter summed it up this way (emphasis is mine):

“I’m trying to save the nation today,” said Robert Cappello, 69, a registered Republican and enthusiastic Brown voter from South Boston who reveled in what he described as an “overwhelming sweep” of momentum for his candidate.

“This election is a lot about sending a message,” Cappello said in an excited voice outside a polling place on H Street. “It’s telling Washington to slow down.”
