For the first time in 16 years, a sitting state senator has lost a re-election bid in Massachusetts. What makes the defeat all the more intriguing is that she is black.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled an appearance at a New York rally next week after organizers blindsided her by inviting Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov.
