  1. John J. Fitzgerald says:

    Why did Markey lose every precinct in Longmeadow? Was it the lack of participation of the unenrolled? More men voting than women? An influx of young voters? 18 year oldsters? Hot weather?

    Longmeadow is a Republican town.

    Regards,

  2. Every city and town that borders Springfield voted for Gomez. The Republican candidate’s margin of victory in these cities and towns was smallest in Longmeadow. That being said, I am genuinely surprised that precinct A went to Gomez.

  3. Ben says:

    Not only did every city and town bordering Springfield vote for Gomez, all of Hampden County except for Springfield and Holyoke voted for him. So while the poorest county in the state voted for Gomez, the two poorest towns in the county (and two of the poorest in the state) voted for Markey.
