Looks like Sean is in the hunt for Barney’s old tired seat.

There’s no real polite way to say it!

At least now there's a chance that a Kennedy won't be back trying to continue screwing the country.

A single year w/o a Kennedy in a national office is just not long enough.

Bravo! He’ll be my first campaign donation.

I hung up on the RNC caller today...after I gave him a piece of my mind....felt good.

Glad to see him jump back in. Maybe his campaign manager can arrange to have a leftist run as a third party candidate to syphon votes from the Dim/Commie candidate.

SharpRight - that may not be enough - SEIU is strong here and well organized. The good thing is the district is totally redrawn and Sean has a decent chance especially after doing fairly decent the last time out.

“Sean has a decent chance especially after doing fairly decent the last time out.”

I thought that I had read about the redistricting about the time Bwarney announced he wouldn’t run again. I hope the new district helps Bielat out. I sent a modest donation to him in 2010 and thought he ran a very good campaign in a very tough district.

I believe that Tom Wesley lives in the new district. He ran against Neal D-Springfield. Hope he and others avoid a primary.

Yep, here’s the new district map - they lose New Bedford which should help A LOT!

Pete, I’m not sure how this effects Tom Wesley, my guess is since it is still most of the old 4th where Sean made major inroads into the last time around that he would be the favorite.

Trisham, likewise. Looks like this will be a jump ball election though Kennedy will have the media, SEIU, the dead supporting him.

You should see the hot response Mrs. Jennings sent to “The Friends of Boner” solicitation today! It will hit File 13 in less than a nanosecond I would guess...but she felt good after venting!

Good Luck, to anybody and everybody with an “R” next to their names, on general election ballots, winning any to all of the highest political office levels throughout Massachusetts, and it’s even more difficult for “conservatism” to make any kind of actual improvements, throughout Massachusetts. Whenever the GOP does win anything in Massachusetts, they are, almost always, RINOS, instead of being conservatives, and this political trend has been ongoing for more than six decades, throughout Massachusetts.

Thanks for the ping, Sparky.

Sean had a credible run against HotBottom in 2010. He could prevail this time with an open field.

I sense the same energy that Scott Brown generated during his special election campaign.

Hey FWC, I’m going to try to make it to Attleboro for the annoucement - we got to keep the stake in the Kennedy Dynasty’s heart!

Looks like Barney received 14,916 votes to Sean’s 6244 votes for a net gain of 8,672 in New Bedford. Well they lose that advantage now.

The end result was 125,825 for Frank to Sean’s 101,315.

Dropping NB from the district would have made it 110,909 for Frank and 95,071 for Sean. The question is whether the new suburban towns (in Scott Brown’s backyard) will be enough to offset?

I can’t say I disagree John, if we look back just a decade or two some of the state’s Dems were more conservative than current Republicans, Flood, King, as examples.

That said we need to reverse the trend and that will take time, perhaps decades.

Let’s not weed the garden before the crops come in.

My wife and I drove an hour through the rain last night to hear Sean’s announcement in Attleboro.

Fox 25 sent a TV crew from Boston for live coverage, plus there were a few local scribes and photographers in attendance. There were also quite a few local politicians, plus a couple dozen friends and family. Everybody trooped over to Scorpio’s Italian Eatery afterwards for pizza and a cash bar.

Sean is an engaging personality up close, but he’s not a dynamic stump speaker. He carries himself like a good Marine, and has an efficient campaign machine in place. It could be a interesting primary fight between Sean and Dr. Elizabeth Childs for the Republican nomination. When was the last time Republicans fought each other for anything in Massachusetts?

Sean Bielat makes me feel old. He has two kids under the age of 2. He also commented that he wished he could do battle with Barney Frank again. LOL!
