Mass., Vermont keep incumbent senator, governor
WRGB-TV is reporting Massachusetts Democratic incumbent U.S. Senator Ed Markey is the projected winner over his Republican challenger Kevin O’Connor. Voters also appear to have approved a motor vehicle data proposition, with 98 percent reporting. If the proposition is approved, car owners and independent repair shops will have access to the same computerized information that dealerships use to diagnose problems and fix cars for 2022 models and newer. In question two, voters were asked to approve ranked-choice voting. The law would implement the use of rank choice voting in primary and general elections for all statewide offices and federal congressional offices. In Vermont, with 100 percent of the votes reported, incumbent Republican Governor Phil Scott has won a second term. He easily defeated Lt., Governor David Zuckerman, with 69-percent of the vote. Scott said in a statement, "Your faith and trust in me is the greatest honor of my life and i will continue to work every single day to make the lives of Vermonters better, our economy stronger and our state more affordable for families and businesses."
