Just talked to Flaherty's press person; Flaherty concedes to Galluccio. [UPDATE (by David, on Wednesday morning): And, as it turns out, Paul Nowicki actually came in second by wiping out every other candidate in his hometown of Chelsea. Finalish numbers according to RWinters: Galluccio 42%, Nowicki 26%, Flaherty 22%, Ross 10%.]
Update: Greg Reibman points us to the Cambridge Chronicle, which he says is updating its story all night:
With 81 percent of the precincts reporting in Cambridge, Galluccio won 918 votes. Former Norfolk County assistant district attorney Tim Flaherty won 578 votes in Cambridge
Since all the candidates are Democrats, Galluccio is the presumptive winner of the election, barring a colossal write-in campaign.
Galluccio bested Flaherty, Chelsea City Councilor Paul Nowicki and human rights lawyer Jeff Ross in a race characterized by general agreeableness and similarities among all the candidates.
“Agreeableness” in general ideology, yes … but it got extremely personal, too.
Congratulations to Galluccio; we hope he'll be a fine senator.
