(CNN) - U.S. Rep. Ed Markey will win Tuesday's special U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts and serve the remainder of fellow Democrat John Kerry's term, CNN projects.
Markey defeated GOP businessman and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez.
Another gop candidate bites the dust....
That man represents everything thats wrong with government.. I had no doubt mass would elect him.
Congratulations, Senator Markey.
Great for Massachusetts.
CNN was tipped off that Markey was the projected winner when Gomez made his concession speech.
A taste of what's to come in 2014.
More of the same to come in 2014!!
Okay – will someone please explain to me why being a SEAL is a qualification for almost every job in the western world. Gomez wanted to be a US Senator. At the top of his resume and emphasized by his lapel pin. His SEAL time.
I know of another who won a very competitive teaching position on the basis of his SEALdom, not his teaching skills. The female students were all in love with him and he told more SEAL stories than anything else.
I've served – on a gunboat – and have never mentioned it beyond the fact that I served in the military from 1960-64. Had I been a SEAL, maybe I'd be President, or an Emperor...
Wow. A white guy beats a Latino. Yes, no racism here.
There's a special stupidity that encompasses voters of both parties.
A man with zero experience vs a man who has been in office (37 yrs) longer than half the eligible voters have been alive....are these the best two Mighty Massachusetts has to offer these days?
He's actually one of the most informed and experienced members of Congress. An expert on telecommunications, he helped transform the industry. He's been an effective consumer advocate, and works well with the GOP. For a politician, not a bad guy.
Good move keep voting for people who will tax you to death,spy on you, and kill you, take your rights away, quit your job and get on welfare might as well join them.
What a travesty. I am in Markey's district, and be advised that he is all about "Go Along And Get Along." He will fall into lockstep with the Dems in the Senate, as he did in the House, and exhibit NO leadership
Way to go Mass Holes. So predictable and still the laughingstock of the country.
Good. The republicans need to be defeated in every county, state, and national level election.
shocking!! a democrat is elected in massachusetts!! why that almost never happens, except in every single election.
Go Ed! Maybe there is still some sanity in America afterall – at least in Massachusetts now!
Jvst a prelude to 2014.
