BOSTON (CBS) – Congratulations to Senator-elect Ed Markey.
Nearly 30 years ago, a young Congressman Markey dropped out of a race for U.S. Senate at the last minute in order to keep his House seat, and some say that decision has haunted him ever since.
It must be a nice feeling to finally reach that goal.
And congratulations to challenger Gabriel Gomez as well.
The Markey campaign never was able to drive up his negative rating as high as they wanted to, testimony to Gomez’s likeability and composure.
He has a future in politics, if he wants it.
