John Kerry Wins Senate Race
Senator John Kerry easily won re-election just four years after he fell short in his bid for the presidency.
The Massachusetts Democrat on Tuesday beat a fellow veteran, Republican Jeff Beatty, in his first campaign since failing as his party’s 2004 White House nominee.
Kerry won another six-year term after tamping down questions about whether he would take an administration role if fellow Democrat Barack Obama wins the presidency.
Kerry has been mentioned as a potential secretary of state or defense secretary.
The senator came into the general election after beating Edward O’Reilly in September, the first time Kerry faced a primary challenger since first winning his seat in 1984.
