Thanks for the comprhensive analysis.

I’ve always understood the Irish Riviera to mean Scituate, which is in the 10th District. I suppose it could include parts of Marshfield and Duxbury as well.

I’ve taken a further look at it. Fall River was partly in the 4th in the 2000’s. Frank won that portion in ‘10 5725-3431.

He actually got a pretty good deal.

The carryovers voted approximately 83253-66301 in favor of Frank. I don’t know how the old Fall River line compares with the new Fall River line.

The constituents he lost voted approximately 42941-35216 in favor of Frank (with New Bedford making up all that margin and then some). He lost 7 towns that voted against him, and only 5 that voted for him.

The territory he gained from the old 3rd district voted approximately 38072-35012 for McGovern.

The territory he gained from the old 9th voted 16382-9502 for Lynch. Those heretics in Needham supported Lynch 8361-3986. Does heretic = “socially conservative?” If so then yes, Lynch’s support wouldn’t extend to Frank.

The territory he gained from the old 2nd voted against Neal, 8416-8989.
