A date has been set for the special election to fill Sen.-elect Edward Markey’s seat in the U.S. House.
U.S. Rep. Edward Markey is one week away from officially becoming the state’s next U.S. Senator.
U.S. Sen.-elect Edward Markey hasn’t resigned from his House seat yet, but the campaign to replace him is already heating up.
I know Gabriel wasn’t the greatest candidate, not a smooth talker, not a polished pol (if that is an attribute) but he offered the Commonwealth something new, something fresh, somebody with impressive credentials outside the drudgery of Washington, D.C……somebody….anybody….other than the 37-year veteran of nothingness, Ed Markey.

Longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey defeated Republican political newcomer Gabriel Gomez in a special election.
Gomez was scheduled to vote early Tuesday in his hometown of Cohasset, with Markey casting his ballot later in the morning in Malden.
The day is here and there really is no good reason for not voting.
The state’s top elections official says all indications point to an historically low voter turnout for the special U.S. Senate election.
