APTOPIX Massachusetts Senate

Tears stream down from the bloodshot eyes of Antoina Gomez, 10, daughter of Gabriel Gomez, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in the Massachusetts open seat special election, during an election day party in Boston, Tuesday, June 25, 2013. Gomez lost his bid against Democrat U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, who won the election and will take the seat vacated by John Kerry's departure to become Secretary of State. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)
