The Massachusetts general election, 2010 was held on November 2, 2010 throughout Massachusetts. Primary elections took place on September 14, 2010.

Federal[edit]

United States Senate[edit]

Neither of Massachusetts's two seats in the United States Senate was up for election in the 2010 general election. In January 2010, Republican Scott Brown won a special election to fill the seat of Ted Kennedy.

United States House of Representatives[edit]

All of Massachusetts's ten seats in the United States House of Representatives are up for election in 2010. All of the incumbent Representatives are seeking re-election, with the exception of Bill Delahunt of District 10. Massachusetts is expected to lose one congressional seat in the redistricting that will follow the 2010 census.[1]

All ten seats were won by Democrats.[citation needed]

State[edit]

All state-wide offices were won by Democrats. The Senate and the House were overwhelmingly won by Democrats as well.

Governor[edit]

Governor Deval Patrick sought re-election. He was challenged by former Green-Rainbow Party co-chair Grace Ross in the Democratic primary,[2] but she failed to get enough signatures on her nomination petition.[citation needed]

Former Harvard Pilgrim Health Care CEO Charles D. Baker, Jr. was the Republican candidate for Governor.[3] Convenience store franchise owner Christy Mihos dropped out of the race after a poor showing at the 2010 Massachusetts Republican Convention.[4]

Physician, activist, and Green-Rainbow Party co-chair Jill Stein ran as the Green-Rainbow candidate.[6]

Lieutenant Governor[edit]

Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray sought re-election. He was challenged in the general election by Massachusetts Senate Minority Leader Richard R. Tisei (Republican),[7] former State Representative Paul Loscocco (Independent),[8] and surgery clerk and ergonomics assessor Richard P. Purcell (Green-Rainbow).[9]

Secretary of the Commonwealth[edit]

Democratic incumbent William F. Galvin sought re-election. He was opposed by Woburn City Clerk William Campbell, who ran as a Republican.[10] and James D. Henderson, who ran as an independent.[11]

The Republicans did not formally nominate a candidate at their convention nor has any candidate collected enough signatures to be on the primary ballot. Nevertheless, two late entry candidates, Jim McKenna,[13] and Guy Carbone[14] were seeking to get the nomination if they can receive 10,000 write-in votes. James McKenna received 27,711 certified write-in votes, which was a United States and Massachusetts Electoral record. The ballot then listed Martha Coakley (D) and James McKenna (R)

Coakley was re-elected.
