WATCH: Joe Kennedy concedes after becoming first Kennedy to lose a race in Massachusetts

Rep. Joe Kennedy III spoke to supporters after conceding the US Senate Democratic Primary race to Sen. Ed Markey.

Joe Kennedy became the first Kennedy to lose a race in the state of Massachusetts.


Kennedy suggested a future run is likely in his plans, tweeting “To everyone who fought with us. Everyone who stood with us. Everyone who believed in us and gave their sweat and tears and hearts and souls to this fight: Thank you. I am so proud of what we built together.”

He added “I’d do it with you all again in a heartbeat.”

Victorious Ed Markey wrote “Tonight is more than just a celebration of an election, it is a celebration of a movement. Thank you to the thousands of grassroots supporters who organized around the principles that we believe in. We could not have done it without you.”
