Ed Markey wins!
In the Massachusetts Senate primary yesterday, to select a successor to former Senator and now Secretary of State John Kerry, Rep. Ed Markey easily triumphed over Rep. Stephen Lynch 57%-43%.
In the Republican primary, former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez won the nomination.
While Markey is the favorite in the special general election to be held June 25, over-confidence should be avoided lest we repeat Massachusetts’ special election disaster of 2010 that sent Republican Scott Brown to the Senate.
This victory is yours as much as it’s Ed’s -- Council supporters have contributed over $50,000 toward this special election effort.
