APTurnout was relatively light across Massachusetts on Tuesday as voters chose which Republican and Democratic candidates will win their party primaries and go on to campaign in the state's second special U.S. Senate election in four years.The race to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's former seat has been overshadowed by the Boston bombings, though turnout in the city was running slightly ahead of another special U.S. Senate primary three years ago in part because of an additional local race on Tuesday's ballot, the state's top elections official said.Even before the bombings, the campaign had failed to capture the attention of voters compared with the 2010 special election following the death of longtime Sen. Edward Kennedy. Former Republican Sen. Scott Brown won the seat but was ousted last year in another high-profile race by Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren.Two Democrats, both members of the state's congressional delegation, and three Republicans are vying for their parties' nominations.A win would help Senate Democrats maintain a caucus edge of 55-45 as they press forward on major issues like immigration and gun control.The Boston Marathon bombs disrupted the political race, forcing the candidates to temporarily suspend their campaigns. The bombings also brought national security and terrorism issues to the fore in an election that was expected to turn on questions of the economy, gun control, taxes, immigration and aborti black comedy, including banning opera and ballet because they did not reflect traditional Turkmen culture and banning lip-synching on the grounds that it weakened Turkmens' ability to become skilled singers.Berdymukhamedov, who became president after Niyazov's death in 2006, has put aside some of Niyazov's more extreme measures, but he has not opened up Turkmenistan's politics or media. His own personality cult includes such feats as winning last year's maiden automobile race in Turkmenistan, even though he supposedly wasn't scheduled to take part and asked to join only at the last minute.State media reports about the president's actions overflow with admiration and delight."The audience greeted President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov, who finished first demonstrating great skills of horse riding, the will to win, firmness and courage with a storm of applause," the state news agency TDH reported after Sunday's race.
