Reid: I will seat Brown as soon as race is certified 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced tonight he will seat Sen. elect- Scott Brown as soon as he receives certification from Massachusetts.

His statement:

"While Senator-elect Brown's victory changes the political math in the Senate, we remain committed to strengthening our economy, creating good paying jobs and ensuring all Americans can access affordable health care. We hope that Scott Brown will join us in these efforts. There is much work to do to address the problems Democrats inherited last year, and we plan to move full speed ahead.

"Regardless of the size of their minority caucus, Senate Republicans have always had an obligation to join us in governing our nation through these difficult times. Today's election doesn't change that; In fact it is now more important than before for Republicans to work with us rather than against us if we are to find common ground that improves Americans' lives."
