BOSTON (AP) – Longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey defeated Republican political newcomer Gabriel Gomez in a special election on Tuesday for the state’s U.S. Senate seat long held by John Kerry, a race that failed to draw the attention that the state’s 2010 special Senate election did.

Markey, 66, won the early backing of Kerry and much of the state’s Democratic political establishment.
