Markey Wins Senate Special Election

Gabriel Gomez giving his concession speech at the Seaport Hotel in Boston.

It’s been a long road to the Senate for Ed Markey, but the road finally came to a successful end for the longtime Congressman Tuesday night.

Markey, a Democrat who has represented Malden since 1976, beat Republican Cohasset businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez in the election Tuesday.

Markey’s party at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston’s Back Bay was a raucous one for local and state Democrats who could revel in a special election victory after losing their last such race in 2010.

He thanked his opponent and said that while they disagreed on issues they both “love the state of Massachusetts and love the United States of America.”

Gomez, speaking to his supporters gathered at the Seaport Hotel, said that he called Markey with congratulations shortly after the race was called and that they had a “very productive talk.”

“I wish him nothing but the best,” Gomez said. read more

24 Possible Mayoral Candidates for Boston’s Sept. Preliminary Election

Boston City Council District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo

The deadline to sign-up for election nomination papers for Boston’s mayoral and city council elections has passed — with 24 possible candidates for mayor.

To put that in perspective, there were five total candidates in 2009’s preliminary election for Boston mayor.

The deadline to sign up for papers was Monday at 5 p.m., and there were no big surprises at the deadline — like Mayor Thomas Menino suddenly deciding to seek reelection.

“The 24 candidates who signed up by Monday’s deadline must now gather 3,000 signatures by May 21 in order to appear on the September 24th election ballot,” said city spokesperson Emilee Ellison. 

Some possible candidates have already started to announce they’re not running for office, like Frank John Addivinola Jr. and Gene Gorman. Or some haven’t committed to which race, like District 4 City Councilor Charles Yancey, who requested papers for the district and mayoral races. read more

Gomez to Face Markey in Senate Election

Gabriel Gomez and Rep. Edward Markey will face off in the U.S. Senate special election June 25.

A political newcomer will face a long-time Massachusetts politician in the race to be the Bay State’s next U.S. senator.

The Associated Press has declared Republican businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez of Cohasset and Democratic U.S. Congressman Edward Markey of Malden the winners of their U.S. Senate special primary elections, according to tweets from Fox 25.

The call for Gomez came approximately one hour after the polls closed in the statewide primary while a call for Markey came moments later.

Gomez defeats his more seasoned opponents, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan of Abington and state Rep. Dan Winslow of Norfolk.

Markey beat fellow U.S. Congressman Stephen Lynch of South Boston. Brett Rhyne of Needham ran an unsuccessful bid as write-in candidate.

The general election will be held June 25.

Tisei Will Not Run in Special Election for U.S. Senate Seat

Richard Tisei (R-Wakefield)

A day after saying he was considering running for the seat vacated by Sen. John Kerry, Republican Richard Tisei announced that he will not be in the race after all. 

On Saturday night, Tisei, a former state Senate minority leader, released a statement regarding his decision:

I’ve been humbled by so many people who’ve urged me to run for this seat, following Senator Scott Brown’s decision not to run on Friday. I believe it’s imperative that the Republican party put forward a strong candidate who can help bring much-needed change to Washington. Unfortunately, the timing is simply not right for me to do so – deeply as I feel about the need to strongly compete in this election.  It was also my desire to make this decision as quickly as possible so that other potential candidates would be able to consider whether they should run.

We have many talented people from all walks of life who should get involved in the political system to bring about change.  The political class ought not be a select few.  That’s part of the reason that we’re in such a mess and that our political system has become dysfunctional.  I urge principled, qualified men and women to stand up and be counted in the political arena.  We have no right to complain if we’re not willing to be constructively involved as we try to build a better future.  I’ve met thousands and thousands of people who do care and have been involved and I urge them to stay involved and to continue to make a difference – especially in these difficult times. read more
