Brown vs. Patrick

Many African-Americans would love to see Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick succeed Sen. John Kerry, who will likely be the next secretary of state. But in a matchup with outgoing Republican Sen. Scott Brown, who was defeated in November by Democrat Elizabeth Warren, he would lose. According to a poll conducted by MassInc Polling Group, Brown has a 58 percent approval rating, higher than any of his potential rivals' in a race against him.
