Election 2014

 

-Democrat Martha Coakley finally conceded the Massachusetts gubernatorial race around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Every major network had the race as a win for Republican Charlie Baker by late Tuesday night, but Coakley refused to concede before going home for the night.

-Republicans won control of the U.S. Senate. They needed to pick up at least six seats, and they did just that. Thom Tillis' win in North Carolina was the one that sealed the takeover.

-Democrat Jeanne Shaheen defeated Republican Scott Brown in the New Hampshire Senate race. Multiple news outlets called this race relatively early Tuesday, but it wound up dragging on for several more hours, with Brown even taking the lead at one point before finally conceding.

-Republicans maintained control of the U.S. House of Representatives. This was pretty much a given from the start, and it was confirmed by multiple news outlets early on Tuesday night.

-Democrat Ed Markey defeated Republican Brian Herr in the Massachusetts Senate race.

-Republican Richard Tisei conceded to Democrat Seth Moulton in the race for the Massachusetts sixth district's U.S. House seat.

-Massachusetts voted to repeal automatic gas tax adjustments that were tied to inflation (Question 1).

-Massachusetts voters rejected the expanded bottle bill (Question 2).

-Massachusetts voters rejected the casino ban (Question 3).

-Massachusetts voters approved earned sick time for workers (Question 4).
