Murray Defeats Keyes
Therese Murray defeats Tom Keyes for the Plymouth and Barnstable District in the Massachusetts state Senate.
Therese Murray got to celebrate her victory early Tuesday as she handily defeated Republican challenger Tom Keyes of Sandwich.
Murray was very pleased with the win, her second over Keyes. She credited social media with helping her campaign.
"It's not that I was out there, it's just we told people where I was...Obviously they responded."
Keyes was disappointed, but seemed relieved as well that the campaign was over. "I'm going back to being a dad," he said.
