politics1 and Green Papers have Marty Farren, Paul Heroux, Jules Levine, and Herb Robinson running on the Democrat side; Sean Bielat and Elizabeth Childs on the Republican.
Frank beat Bielat 54-43 in ‘10; it’s not a safe seat necessarily although you’d have to say Democrat favored.
The lines are slightly different in ‘12. I had taken a look at it some time ago.
lines are radically different, I would say.
I was trying to find what happened to the town of Norfolk which was Bielat’s home town ... now out of district I think. Bielat could now list his home as Brookline, I have read.
Marty Farren, Paul Heroux, Jules Levine, and Herb Robinson are all minor candidates, if I have my facts straight. There might be a challenge to JKIII in the primary from the legislative crowd that sees him as an outsider & novice. One of those legislators I listed.
