Congressman keeps seat

(Continued)

Last night, Tierney did not want to reflect on the difficulties of the campaign.

"Let's talk about the election," he said. "The people in this district have known what kind of representation they've got for 14 years. They know it's been honest. They know it's been with integrity and they know it's been with a passion for the issues that matter to them."

Tierney promised to go back to Washington and fight for the middle class, for "Main Street."

"Boy is this sweet," Peabody Mayor Michael Bonfanti said to the crowd. "You know, together we can, and together we can put that tea party to bed."

"Coming into this election cycle, I think all of us were a little bit nervous," state Rep. John Keenan said. "There was a tremendous wave throughout the country of anti-incumbent attitudes, but it didn't reach Massachusetts."
