Rep Lombardo (GOP Billerica) is not running for State Senate in the 4th Middlesex Special Election, all that money spent on a push poll fer nothing...is Charlie Potatoes gonna give this one a pass? If I was the GOP I would not, the potential for mischief on the cheap seems too tempting. Then again the State Senate is getting to be a costly venue for a two year term on Beacon Hill, there are those who can't raise the money or simply don't want the mishaugas.
Will the General Election be contested ? Stay tuned folks!
Meanwhile CIndy Friedman (The late Ken Donnelly's redoubtable Chief of Staff) has piled in for sure and racked up the endorsement of Lexington's State Rep Jay Kaufman...thats important because with the democratic vote seemingly divided in Arlington the importance of racking up good totals in Lexington Burlington, Woburn & Billerica becomes paramount. Normally sweeping the democratic vote in Arlington & Lexington is tantamount to nomination and theoretically sufficient turnout in Arlington alone can get you the State Senate Nomination, but that likely won't be the case in this go round....like I said, stay tuned!
