Ted Nesi reports on the first time a Kennedy ever lost an election in Massachusetts.
On the Republican side, the guy who says he invented e-mail has lost again, this time to the guy who will lose to Markey in November.
Addressing his supporters and reporters in Watertown shortly after 10:30 p.m., Kennedy pledged to support Markey. "The senator is a good man, you have never heard me say otherwise."
He added he is proud of the work he and his campaign did to support poor people in places from Lawrence and Springfield to Roxbury. "We have built a coalition that will endure," one that represents the future of the Democratic Party.
