The 2014 United States Senate election in Massachusetts will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Democratic Senator Ed Markey is running for re-election to a first full term in office.[1]

Background[edit]

Incumbent Democratic Senator John Kerry, serving since 1985, had planned to run for re-election to a sixth term, but it was announced on December 15, 2012 that Kerry would be nominated as United States Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick appointed Mo Cowan as a temporary replacement for Kerry after he was confirmed as Secretary of State and resigned his Senate seat. There was a special election on June 25, 2013 to finish the term, in which Democrat Ed Markey was elected.
