Markey wins Democratic primary for U.S. Senate

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Veteran U.S. Rep. Edward Markey has won the Democratic nomination to run in Massachusetts' special election for the U.S. Senate seat previously held by John Kerry.

Unofficial returns show Markey defeating fellow U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch in Tuesday's Democratic primary.

In the June 25 special election, Markey will face businessman and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez, who won a three-way Republican primary against former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and state Rep. Daniel Winslow.

Markey has served in the U.S. House since 1976 and is the dean of the state's congressional delegation. He had the early backing of Kerry, who resigned from the Senate to become U.S. secretary of state.
