Voters in Massachusetts elected a new United States Senator this week. Democrat Edward Markey, who spent 37 years in the U.S. House, will succeed John Kerry in the Senate. Just 27 percent of the state’s registered voters went to the polls on Tuesday. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with one of Markey’s House colleagues, Congressman Richard Neal.
