Markey Wins Massacusetts Senate Special Election (June 25, 2013)

Ed Markey has won the Massachusetts special election for the seat vacated by John Kerry.  (see:  http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2013/06/election-day-tomorrow-massachusetts.html)

Gabriel Gomez held an early lead (e.g., 52/48 with 24% of the precincts reporting) but urban votes have come in later for Markey.  The tide turned with 38% of the precincts reporting when Markey first took the lead.  As of this moment, at 9:03 PM, Markey holds a 52% to 48% lead with 61% of the precincts reporting and his lead is expanding with each update.

With this victory, Democrats maintain their 54-46 margin in the Senate (counting the two Independents who vote with the caucus).
