Live chat beginning over at LegalInsurrection. Hoping that PoliticalWire.com posts a Flash-enabled Tweet-fest later this evening (like they have in previous elections).
This posting will be updated throughout the day on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 with developments.
In the meantime, here are some updates, sights and sounds on this eve before the Massachusetts Senate special election.
On the eve of the Massachusetts special election Tuesday to replace the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, the Republican candidate has dramatically more followers on social networks than the Democratic candidate.
As of Monday morning, Republican Scott Brown has 76,538 fans on his Facebook page. With polls opening in less than 24 hours, Democrat Martha Coakley has 14,441 fans.
On Twitter, Brown has 10,187 followers compared to Coakley’s 3,514 followers. The total uploaded views for Brown’s YouTube videos are 578,271 versus 51,173 for Coakley.
PeachPundit posts that the Fulton County, GA GOP made 7,000 calls for State Senator Scott Brown:
ATLANTA ? The Fulton County Republican Party attracted volunteers from Fulton, Gwinnett, and Cobb County this week for phone banks to help State Senator Scott Brown win the U.S. Senate seat that was held for decades by Ted Kennedy. In five days, volunteers placed over 7,000 calls using the new Fulton GOP G.O.T.V. (Get Out The Vote) phone system.
?By electing Scott Brown, the people of Massachusetts are fundamentally changing not only the politics as usual environment that existed in the state for decades, but the short-lived filibuster-proof Democratic majority in Washington,? said Shawn Hanley, Chairman of the Fulton County Republican Party.
?The outpouring of support from our volunteers is a testament of the historic nature of this special election, and the American people?s belief that Scott Brown?s vote is the only way to stop the health care reform legislation from passing.?
The Fulton GOP will host an Election Night Victory Party on Tuesday, January 19 starting at 7:00 p.m. The party headquarters is located at 5920 Roswell Rd Suite B-115 Sandy Springs, GA 30328. Polls in Massachusetts close at 8:00 p.m. Please join us to watch the results come in on two 50? screen TVs.

Writer Joan Swirsky has cross-published a column over at The Post & Email entitled, “Brown’s Victory Will Signal Second American Revolution.“
And CNN is reporting Mr. Brown saying that, if he wins, he’ll be heading to DC on Friday:
Insurgent Massachussetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown told CNN he expects to be installed quickly as Massachusetts’ next senator should he win the state’s special election Tuesday.
Asked about the state of the race, Brown said he’s still campaigning as if he’s running “down 30 points.”
But sounding confident, the GOP state senator says he’s made plans to travel to Washington Friday if he’s victorious.
Brown warned any plan to quickly pass health care reform before the results are certified in Massachusetts would send the wrong message to Americans.
