Dorcena Forry appears to win 1st Suffolk Senate primary

State Representative Linda Dorcena Forry, a Haitian-American from Dorchester, appeared late Tuesday to have narrowly won the Democratic nomination for the First Suffolk Senate district, a seat long held by Irish-American men from South Boston.

With 100 percent of votes tallied, the City of Boston’s unofficial results showed Forry holding a lead of 378 votes over South Boston state Representative Nick Collins, out of a total of 21,730 votes cast in the three-way race.
