Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, the man responsible for ending the Democrats’ filibuster-proof majority in the Senate this year, may have a battle on his hands in 2012. That has nothing to do with Brown himself, Politico reports.

scott, brown, election, 2012“His polling numbers are still solid. There’s no Democratic warhorse candidate primed to take him on. Brown’s campaign coffers are full, and his celebrity lets him command a national following,” the news service writes.

The problem: Republicans were unable to win a single high-profile position in last week’s elections. Gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker, viewed as a star by many Republicans, lost by 6 percentage points to incumbent Democrat Deval Patrick. Esteemed Republicans also lost campaigns for state treasurer and auditor.

“Obviously, the results show that Massachusetts is, at its core, a Democratic state,” says former Democratic Rep. Martin Meehan, now chancellor of the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
