(NECN) - Tuesday night Democrat Ed Markey won the special election, defeating Republican Gabriel Gomez by a wide margin, reeling in 55 percent of the vote to Gomez's 45 percent.
Gomez gave a 17-minute long concession speech, in which he congratulated Markey, thanked his family and apologized to supporters.
So what could the future hold for Gabriel Gomez?
Peter Ubertaccio, professor at Stonehill College, joined NECN to talk about the possibilities.
Ubertaccio says there’s a possibility at a state level that Gomez may have a political future.
He said that the 10-point margin Markey had over Gomez is something that Republicans are not going to be able to overcome in 2014.
