Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown is visiting Washington Thursday for a round of courtesy calls on Capitol Hill.
He'll meet with his new Massachusetts colleague, Sen. John Kerry, as well as his highest-profile backer, Arizona Sen. John McCain.
The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, is meeting with Brown before he has lunch with a broader group of colleagues.
No word yet on when Sen.-elect Brown will be sworn in.
