• US Sen. Brown delivers farewell speech to Senate


    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is saying goodbye to his fellow senators after three years in Congress.

    Brown, who lost his re-election bid to Democrat Elizabeth Warren, gave a farewell speech on the Senate floor Wednesday.

    Brown thanked Massachusetts voters for letting him represent them and said he kept his promise to vote on issues based on their individual merits rather than partisan politics.

    The Republican also pointed to several bills he helped push through, including legislation to ban insider trading by members of Congress and a measure designed to help returning veterans find work.

    Brown gave no indication of his future political plans, but said he was concerned about the sharp partisan divisions in Washington.

    Brown will continue to serve in the Senate until Warren is sworn in next month.
