Sen. Ed Markey Wins Primary Against Rep. Joe Kennedy

Yahoo News reports:

Rep. Joe Kennedy III fell short in his bid to unseat incumbent Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey on Tuesday, ending a fractious Democratic primary by becoming the first member of the Kennedy family to lose an election in the state.

Kennedy, 39, attempted to portray himself as the change candidate against the 74-year-old Markey, who has only held the Senate seat since 2013 but began representing Massachusetts in the House in 1976.

Markey surged with the help of grassroots energy and youthful support, boosted by an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, his ally on the Green New Deal.
