Leah Cole, candidate for state rep in Massachusetts’ 12th Essex district reportedly just won the republican primary! She’s a libertarian leaning republican, supported by Ron Paul and many other libertarians. I can feel the political scene in Mass changing already.
I just got back from the third debate between Tisei and Tierney and I’m exhausted. Long story short, Tierney lied his ass off and then went on to accuse Richard of being a Tea Party extremist and that he will restrict birth control and shut down Planned Parenthood.
From the Politico Morning Score.
“MASSACHUSETTS-6: Republican Richard Tisei is up 17 over incumbent John Tierney (50-33), a 15-point swing from last month. The embattled Democratic congressman is hugely upside down, with a 54 percent unfavorable rating and a 32 percent favorable, in a poll conducted by John McLaughlin for the NRCC. Scott Brown is up 55-40 in the district. This comes on the heels of Stu Rothenberg changing the race rating to lean Republican on Saturday. Exclusive: http://goo.gl/6PHaj.”
This is huge! The Mass. GOP is finally going to have a house seat again!
“Bruce, allow me to interject,” Tierney said. “My opponent, Mr. Tisei, was the leader of the Senate Republicans. He voted with the Republicans 100 percent of the time. It’s comical to listen to you start making that basis.”
Tisei responded with humor. “Yeah, I was the leader, so I voted with myself 100 percent of the time,” he said. “I guess that makes sense.”
