(CNN) - Insurgent Massachussetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown told CNN he expects to be installed quickly as Massachusetts' next senator should he win the state's special election Tuesday.
Asked about the state of the race, Brown said he's still campaigning as if he's running "down 30 points."
But sounding confident, the GOP state senator says he's made plans to travel to Washington Friday if he's victorious.
Brown warned any plan to quickly pass health care reform before the results are certified in Massachusetts would send the wrong message to Americans.
He made the remarks as he was greeting voters outside Boston's TD Banknorth Garden before Monday's Boston Bruins game.
