Markey Declares Victory In Mass. U.S. Senate Race

BOSTON — Congressman Ed Markey is going to Washington as a U.S. senator. He beat Republican Gabriel Gomez in the special election to fill the Senate seat formerly held by Secretary of State John Kerry by a 10-point margin.

Tuesday’s election was in strong contrast to the last special Senate election here three years ago, when state Democrats were delivered an embarrassing blow by Republican Scott Brown.
