Kerry and Delahunt bet on victory margins against rumored candidate for MassGOP Chair, Jeff Beatty

Cape Cod Times (11-10-08):

Speaking of Kerry, not only did he win another term of office last week with his defeat of Harwich Republican Jeff Beatty, but he won a friendly wager with Congressman William Delahunt, D-Mass., as well. And that race was a lot closer.

During a Democrat rally at the Resort and Conference Center in Hyannis last Monday – on the eve of the election – Delahunt and Kerry revealed that the two had made a bet on who could beat Beatty by a greater margin.

In 2006, Delahunt defeated Beatty, the Republican challenger for the congressional seat, by a difference of 33.8 percent of the vote.

Last week, Kerry defeated Beatty by a margin of 34.8 percent, giving him a narrow victory over his Democratic colleague.

Kerry and Delahunt did not disclose the terms of the bet.
