Angelo Scaccia, who has served in the state House of Representatives since 1973 - except for two years - won re-election tonight in the 14th Suffolk district, which covers Hyde Park and parts of Roslindale and West Roxbury.
Latest results from the Boston elections department show Scaccia with only about 39.5 percent. But with Gretchen Van Ness and Segun Idowu splitting the progressive vote in the district, that was more than enough to retain his seat.
Van Ness is coming in second with about 26% of the vote and Idowu third with about 21.5%.
Two other candidates combined for almost 4%.
