Brown Wins Massachusetts (updated: Coakley concedes)

With votes coming in fast, Scott Brown is maintaining about a 5% lead: 52% to 47%. Howie Carr, on The O'Reilly Factor, reported that in minority areas, turnout is lower than in other areas, favoring Brown.

Richard Baehr adds:


I do not like what I am seeing.   brown margins in suburbs not as big as  I hoped. a bit of good news: cities -- Boston, Worcester, Brown doing much better than anticipated.

Update from Thomas Lifson: AP is projecting Brown the winner.

Update: Fox reports Coakley has called Brown to concede.

Richard Baehr writes:

Coakley bombed in the cities. Romney in his governors race win did better than Brown in the 'burbs, but Brown did much better in 3 big cities- Boston, Worcester, Springfield.
It's all over. 5-7% margin when all done I think.
