The AP has just called the Massachusetts special election to replace Ted Kennedy for Republican Scott Brown. The Times currently has Brown with 52 percent of the vote and Martha Coakley with 46 percent, with 79 percent of precincts reporting. The Boston Globe says that Coakley has called Brown and conceded. Now is the time for Democrats to panic.
