Gomez, Markey win

With low turnout, North Shore results mostly mirror state's


“I think (Lynch’s) positions are more centrist,” he said. “My problem with Markey is we’ll have another true ultra-liberal Democrat in Congress, and it will be tough to pass legislation. There is too much extreme on both sides of the parties.”

In Wenham, Town Clerk Trudy Reid reported 17 percent turnout, which is right on par with a typical election in that town. With an estimated 17 percent turnout statewide, Reid said Wenham had a “good turnout.”

“We had a pretty good stream going through,” Reid said of the polls. “There was about an hour where there was a lull.”

The special election is scheduled for June 25.
