Elizabeth Warren has captured a Senate seat from Massachusetts, defeating Scott Brown, the Republican who had replaced the late Democratic “Lion of the Senate” Edward M. Kennedy.

Warren took 54 percent of 50- to 64-year-old voters compared to 46 percent for Brown. Those voters represent 29 percent of the Bay State electorate. Among 65-plus voters, who make up 20 percent of Massachusetts voters, Warren bested Brown by 54-46 percent.

President Obama, who was heavily favored to win the blue state, did better among older voters than Warren, winning the 50-64 age group (58-41 percent) and 65-plus voters (56 to 43 percent) against Republican Mitt Romney. —Susan Milligan
