Updated Dec 10, 11:09 PM
BOSTON - Democrat Katherine Clark easily defeated three opponents Tuesday to win a vacant congressional seat and become the fifth woman to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. House.
After topping a crowded Democratic primary, the state senator ran a low-key general election campaign in a state where voters have grown weary of special elections.
Clark thanked family members and backers gathered in Stoneham, north of Boston, to celebrate the win.
