Scott Brown is a well-known American lawyer and politician who used to represent Massachusetts as a US senator. In the special election in 2010 to fill the rest of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy’s term, which ends on January 3, 2013, he beat the Democratic candidate, Martha Coakley. He got a lot of attention because of his simple, open-minded ideas and principles. He thinks that his hard childhood and strong dreams, which helped him shape his career and goals, made him a unique person. Even though he was a smart and talented student, he had to work as a model in college to pay for his education and get his degrees. Even though he was trained to be a defense lawyer in the US army, he eventually became interested in politics and ran for office as a Republican to get into the US Senate. He finished his full term in the Senate in 2012, but he lost his re-election bids in 2012 and 2014. He was the first man to lose two consecutive senate races to women. After he left politics, he went into private practice and began working for FOX News. His conservative views on things like abortion for rape victims, opposition to gay rights, putting criminals to death, and cutting taxes to create new jobs got him into big fights over and over again.

Scott’s childhood and early life

Philip Brown was born on September 12, 1959, at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Seavey’s Island in Kittery, Maine. His parents, Claude Bruce Brown and Judith Ann were born in England and moved to the United States.
After his parents split up when he was only one, he moved to Wakefield, Massachusetts, with his mother. His parents each got remarried three times. His mother and his grandparents raised him.

He went to see his father in Newburyport, Massachusetts. His father was a city councilor there for almost 18 years and helped him run for state office.
After he finished high school in Wakefield, Massachusetts, in 1977, he went to Tufts University and got a bachelor’s degree in history in 1981.

He went to Boston College Law School to study law. In 1985, he got his Juris Doctor.
During his time at Boston College Law School, he paid for his tuition by modeling on the side. He was a model for different companies, like Marshall’s department store and Jordache jeans.

Scott Brown’s Career

He joined the Massachusetts Army National Guard in 1978 after seeing how the Army National Guard helped save people. At Northwestern University, he took ROTC classes to learn how to do infantry, quartermaster, and airborne duties.

In 1992, the people of Wrentham, Massachusetts, chose him to be the town’s property assessor. During this time, he got interested in politics, and in 1995, he was elected to the Wrentham Board of Selectmen.

He joined the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) in 1994 and worked his way up to the rank of lieutenant colonel. In 2005 and 2007, he spent a short time in Paraguay and Kazakhstan. In 2014, after 35 years of service, he left the Army.

In 1998, he ran for and won a seat in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. For three terms, he was the representative for the 9th Norfolk District.
He moved up slowly in state politics after he won a special election in March 2004 to replace Cheryl Jacques in the Massachusetts State Senate. In November 2006 and 2008, he successfully ran for office again.

During his time in office in 2006, he was a strong supporter of the Massachusetts health care reform at the time, in which all residents were given health insurance and those with low incomes were given a plan that was paid for by the state.

In 2009, he said he wanted to run for the US Senate seat left open by Ted Kennedy’s death in Massachusetts. In 2010, he beat Attorney General Martha Coakley and independent Joseph L. Kennedy to win the seat.

His win ended a 50-year Democratic monopoly in Massachusetts. During that time, people were upset about different national issues that came up while Democrats were in charge.
In 2012, he ran for re-election and it was a close race, but Democratic consumer activist Elizabeth Warren beat him by a small amount.

In February 2013, he became an on-air contributor for Fox News. He put to rest any rumors that his contract would be canceled in February 2014 by confirming that it was, in fact, renewed.
Nixon Peabody hired him in March 2013 to work in the financial services and commercial real estate industries. In April 2014, he quit the company.

In September 2013, he was hired to be on the advisory board of Global Digital Solutions, a company that makes wireless communications and small arms.
In 2014, he ran for re-election against Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, but she beat him. He was the first man to lose two consecutive senate elections to women, the first one being to Elizabeth Warren.

In order to be less reliant on oil from other countries, he suggested making the most of resources like solar, wind, nuclear power, and drilling in the ocean.
He is the top defense lawyer for the Guard from New England right now.

Even though he was against same-sex marriage because he thought marriage should be between a man and a woman, he now supports gay marriage and says it’s a settled issue in Massachusetts, but he won’t change it.

When he said that rape victims should be given emergency rooms in hospitals and given morning-after pills to prevent pregnancy, he made a controversial statement. The change, however, did not become law.

His Works of note

When he won a special election in Massachusetts in 2010, no one expected him to win. This made him the first Republican to represent Massachusetts in the US Senate since Edward Brooke in 1972.

As a lawmaker, he put a box on the State income tax form where veterans could check if they had served in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars. This was called the “Welcome Home” bonus, and it gave them the chance to get $1000.

Even though he kept a low profile after he was elected, he was able to get the Senate to pass the Democrat-backed “jobs bill” in 2010, even though he was one of only five Republicans who agreed with the motion.

Awards & Achievements

He won Cosmopolitan magazine’s “America’s Sexiest Man” contest when he was still in law school. He later got $1000 for being naked on the cover of the June 1982 issue.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, he was given the Army Commendation Medal for “meritorious service in homeland security.”
For his work in the Army, he was given the Legion of Merit award.

In 1986, he got married to Gail Huff, who worked as a news reporter for the Boston TV station WCVB. They have two daughters: Ayla, who was born in 1988 and was a semi-finalist on “American Idol,” and Arianna, who was born in 1990.
