Senate President Terry Murray is victorious and returns to a seat in the Senate that she has held for two decades.
Although Senate President Terry Murray’s opponent Tom Keyes claimed people in the Plymouth and Barnstable district needed a change, voters did not agree and returned Murray to the Senate seat she has held for twenty years. She thanked her supporters last night at the victory celebration at the Radisson Hotel:
“You made this happen. All of you made this happen. This is something we did together but without you I never, never could have been here tonight, with this kind of success. And what is it? Fifty-nine forty-one right now.”
Murray has been Senate President for five years and before that served as Chair of the Ways and Means Committee. She was first elected to office in 1992 unseating Republican Senator Edward Kirby of Whitman.
