Brown to meet with senators on Capitol Hill

Sen.-elect Scott Brown (R-Mass.) will meet with a number of Democratic and Republican senators when he visits Capitol Hill on Thursday.

The winner of Tuesday's special election to permanently replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D) has not been certified or seated yet, but he will hold preliminary meetings with Senate leaders, his Massachusetts counterparts and an early supporter.

Brown will first meet with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), one of his first supporters in the Senate, at 10:10 am.

Then, Brown will huddle individually with  Massachusetts Sens. John Kerry (D) and Paul Kirk (D) at 10:30 am and 11 am respectively. Brown will replace Kirk when he is sworn in and seated.

Brown will then head over to the office of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) at 11:45 am. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on the Senate floor Thursday morning that he will also meet with Brown, though it is still unclear when that meeting will take place.
