UPDATE, 11/5 — 12:00 a.m.: Scott Brown called Jeanne Shaheen around midnight to concede the race.

UPDATE — 10:50 p.m. ET: Scott Brown refused to concede the election to incumbent Jeanne Shaheen Tuesday night, despite multiple media outlets projecting he would lose the race.

Moreover, The Boston Globe updated their story, saying the race was too close to call.

Democratic incumbent candidate Jeanne Shaheen defeated Republican Scott Brown in the race for New Hampshire's U.S. Senate seat, ABC News and NBC News reported.

Shaheen, elected to the Senate in 2009, fought off Brown, who previously served in the Senate for Massachusetts after winning a special election to fill the seat of Ted Kennedy.

Brown moved to New Hampshire shortly after losing his re-election bid in Massachusetts and announced his intention to run for the Senate in New Hampshire in April.

During the campaign, Brown attempted to paint Shaheen as an Obama loyalist, while she offered a different view of the race.

"There are two people on the ballot tomorrow: me and Scott Brown," said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire as she made the rounds of six campaign stops on the race's final full day.
