Democrat Marty Walsh wins Boston Mayoral Election
Democrat Katherine Clark and Republican Frank Addivinola have captured their respective party’s nominations in the special election primary for Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District.
Three years ago, Massachusetts Republicans thought they were on the forefront of a movement. Scott Brown’s surprising Senate victory brought a wave of promise to the beleaguered GOP in a deep blue state. But Republican Gabriel E. Gomez’s dispiriting loss to veteran Representative Edward J. Markey in Tuesday’s Senate race tamped down those hopes, leading some state Republicans to suggest that it might be time to rethink their brand before the next campaign cycle heats up. “If we’re going to have real competition for office in this state, we probably need more independent candidates”, said Todd Domke, a Republican strategist. “Because Republicans looking at this result are discouraged. This was not some anomaly. This has been going on for decades.”
