State Senate

Keyes bids to unseat Murray

In a district with an unusually sizable Republican presence, Thomas F. Keyes is hoping that a sharp conservative message and an aggressive campaign against state Senate president Therese Murray will produce one of the biggest upsets in Massachusetts political history.

Murray has held the seat for the Plymouth and Barnstable District for the past 20 years and has been Senate president since 2007. The Plymouth Democrat is campaigning on a record of delivering for the district, while promoting statewide initiatives that have streamlined government and controlled the cost of health care and energy.
