The first debate between Senator Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren is over and both party representatives are checking in with their opinions on the debate. Congressman Barney Frank says if Senator Brown wins it could mean turning over control of the Senate to the Republicans.

Meanwhile, Chris Perreira is the vice chairman of the Dartmouth Republican Town Committee and tells WBSM news he believed Senator Brown had command of the issues.

The 2 candidates will have plenty of time to express their views because there at least 4 more televised debates planned over the next 6 weeks.
