His unexpected, come-from-behind victory has sent political shock waves across the country. He was greeted like a rock star on his first trip to Washington.
Now, in a coda to his campaign, US Senator-elect Scott Brown is going to make the rounds again in Massachusetts.
Brown will crisscross the state Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to hold a series of what he's calling "Citizen Open Houses." More than a victory lap, the tour will give Brown a chance to thank supporters personally and also reach out to people who did not vote for him last week, the campaign said.
"I'm looking forward to seeing some familiar faces from the campaign trail, but I hope to see lots of new faces as well, because I don't just want to be the senator of those who supported me," Brown said in a statement. "I want to be the senator for all of the people of Massachusetts."
Brown -- and, we're told, his now-famous GMC Canyon pick-up truck -- will make six stops:
Chicopee : Friday, noon, Hu Ke Lau restaurant, 705 Memorial Drive
Falmouth : Friday, 7 p.m. , Falmouth Inn , 824 Main St. (Route 28)
Saugus : Saturday, 1 p.m. , Kowloon restaurant, 948 Broadway (Rte. 1 North)
Dracut : Saturday, 3:30 p.m., Lenzi's Catering , 810 Merrimack Ave. (Route 110)
Worcester : Saturday, 6 p.m. , Maxwell-Silverman's Restaurant , 25 Union St.
Foxborough : Sunday, 5 p.m. , Christina's Function Facility , 2 Washington St. (Route 1)
Note: an earlier version of this on-line story gave an incorrect date for the first two events. The events will be held Friday.
