| If the election for the Plymouth and Barnstable Senate district were held this past Tuesday, Republican Tom Keyes would have beat Senate President Therese Murray by over 1400 votes.
With only Plympton left to report Tom Keyes secured 11,674 votes in his uncontested primary election and Senate President Murray received 10,240. Keyes won every town except the town of Kingston. This includes Murray's hometown of Plymouth where he won by a 366 vote margin 2,986 to 2,620.
There are other nuggets like this in Tuesday's primary results. If you know of them share them. We cannot however use these numbers as a reason to be complacent the stakes are too high. It is time to redouble our efforts and forge ahead to victory in November.
