Results of Massachusetts special election primary

Well I was pretty close for my prediction of the Democratic party primary. Ed Markey won with 57% of the vote and Stephen Lynch received 43%, compared to my prediction of 55-45.

Gabriel Gomez won the Republican primary with 51% of the vote. Mike Sullivan got 36% of the vote and Dan Winslow got 13%. My guess based on the limited polling we had was Gomez at 45%, Sullivan 40%, and Winslow at 15%. I thought Sullivan would do a bit better but I underestimated Gomez's appeal.

I think Markey wins fairly handily in June based on the polls it should be by about the same margin he won the primary by.
