Jerry, I’ve looked at the listed results from a local news station.http://www.wcvb.com/news/politics/results-from-2013-massachusetts-special-election-us-senate-primary/-/9848766/19889986/-/format/rsss_2.0/-/jmvjsmz/-/index.htmlMarkey drew more votes than all the R candidates combined. I fully recognize that it was a special election and turnout was low. A quick google of MA population put it at 6.5 mil in July 2011. Totat voting in the primary looked like ~ 1/10th of that. This doesn’t tell me that either one has the advantage over the other.
