As he often does, President Donald Trump began his day with a tweet: “See, even a Kennedy isn’t safe in the new Radical Left Democrat Party. Taxes up big, no 2A. Biden has completely lost control. Pelosi strongly backed the loser!”
The loser in this case is Democrat Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III, who was soundly trounced in Massachusetts’ U.S. Senate primary by the incumbent Democrat Sen. Ed Markey.
Markey easily won with around 55 percent of the vote, to Kennedy’s 45 percent.
As The New York Times put it, this was the “first-ever electoral loss in Massachusetts” for the Kennedy family, “demonstrating the growing strength of the progressive left.”
