Markey Beats Kennedy; Dynasty Declared Dead

On Tuesday, Sen.

Ed Markey crushed Rep.

Joe Kennedy.

Markey ended the Democratic Party's family dynasty that had never before lost an election in Massachusetts.

CNN reports that Kennedy was slammed for not articulating a reason for running besides his own ambition.

Kennedy's entire campaign was based on who his family is and that politics was "in his blood." His campaign explicitly portrayed him as heir to a political legacy, with ads showing his famous relatives Markey deflected his opponent's shine by projecting the power of some of the party's brightest stars.

Markey beat Kennedy 55.48% to 44.52%
