In the wake of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday, the candidates running in the state's Senate special election put their campaigns on hold and offered their condolences for the victims and their families.

Democratic Rep. Edward Markey, the frontrunner in the race, announced the suspension of all campaign activities. His competitor in the Democratic primary, Rep. Stephen Lynch, a South Boston native, said in a statement: "No matter who or what is responsible, this is a terrible tragedy for our city and our nation. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been injured today."

One of the Republican contenders, former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez, ran in the marathon Monday but was unharmed. Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and State Rep. Dan Winslow, the other two GOP candidates, also suspended their campaigns until further notice.

The primary in the special election to replace Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled for April 30.
