Elizabeth Warren Wins U.S. Senate Seat in Massachusetts

Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren has beaten incumbent Republican candidate Scott Brown for a seat on the U.S. Senate, according to the Associated Press.

Democrat U.S. Congressman Ed Markey will serve a 19th term in Washington.

Markey led Republican challenger Tom Tierney 75 percent to 25 percent with 41 percent of precincts reporting,  according to Boston.com, which had called the race by 9:45 p.m. Markey's seat has traditionally been for the 7th District of Massachusetts, but that changed with redistricting last year.

State Sen. Donnelly Wins Re-election

State Sen. Ken Donnelly, D-Arlington, has been re-elected by district voters to continue to represent the Fourth Middlesex District based on the towns that have reported thus far. 

Rogers Win State Rep Race Big; Romney Loses Hometown to Obama

Cambridge resident Dave Rogers claimed a decisive victory to become the next State Representative of the 24th Middlesex District on Beacon Hill after soundly defeating two Belmont residents in Tuesday's General Election.

The business attorney, who ran on his willingness to be an independent voice despite party affiliation, won nearly 50 percent of Belmont voters while trouncing Independent Jim Gammill and Republican Tomi Olson in the Arlington and Cambridge precincts.

State Rep. Sean Garballey won his bid for re-election in the 23rd Middlesex District Tuesday, defeating Republican challenger Joe Monju by more than a 4-to-1 margin.

The 27-year-old incumbent Democrat received 81.30 percent of the vote, or 18,918 votes. Monju, a first-time candidate, took in 18.70 percent, or 4,351.
