Republican Scott Brown, the senator-elect from Massachusetts whose upset victory turned him into somewhat of a savior for his party, arrived in Washington Thursday to meet with Senate leaders and check out his new digs.

The soon-to-be former state lawmaker, who appeared bleary-eyed and still processing his victory at a press conference the day before, told reporters Thursday he expects to get to work soon and suggested his win would provide a massive check on Democratic power.

“I think everybody’s the 41st vote now,” he said, referring to the fact that Democrats will no longer have a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate.
