Pagliuca falls short in Senate bid

Celtics [1] co-owner Steve Pagliuca’s bid to secure the Democratic nod for the open U.S. Senate seat came to an apparent end on Tuesday night when Martha Coakley won in a runaway.

Pagliuca and Alan Khazei were neck-and-neck for third behind Coakley and Democratic runner-up Michael Capuano.

On the Republican side, Scott Brown, whose daughter Ayla is a senior on the Boston College [2] women’s basketball team, cruised to victory in his primary.

Coakley will square off against Brown on Jan. 19 to fill the seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy.
