BOSTON - Independent gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill suffered another high-level defection Friday, as his running mate Paul Loscocco announced he was abandoning his campaign for lieutenant governor and instead endorsing Republican Charles Baker.

Good. The thought of that little squirt Deval being re-elected is nauseating.
Unintended or not, the only purpose of Cahill's campaign is to help the Big Government candidate (Deval Patrick) get re-elected. Cahill's staff seems to realize this and they are jumping ship in an effort to help Republican Charlie Baker beat Patrick.
If Cahill is hanging in there, then there are two choices:
1) He's too stupid to realize that he is helping the fiscal Liberal
2) He's a fiscal Liberal himself, campaigning under false pretences.
Baker is FOR RomneyCARE.
Winning this race, means ObamaCARE has a serious
likelihood of surviving.
I would love to be proved wrong on this one.
He's running for governor. How will that have an effect on Congress repealing ObamaCARE?
We were thrilled to get Scott Brown. By far the best choice in that race.
Then we were dismayed when people across the country started talking about "Scott Brown in 2012!" We knew who he was. Scott Brown is a Liberal who supports Obama on almost everything. He's a MA Republican.
Losing this race means Barack Communistcare has just as a serious likelihood of surviving.
One key to ensuring its demise is not have Romney running in 2012.
Anything is better than Deval Patrick.
Cahill must have been promised a fat job in DC to run as an obvious strawman.
I agree. Cahill is not a legitimate candidate...he’s a plant from the Patrick administration to split the vote.
“Scott Brown is a Liberal who supports Obama on almost everything.”
He does in a pigs ass,He gone off the reservation twice.He has to run again against a huge democrat machine in this state who already started their campaign against him.He got elected with less than a half a turn to go in it.Give him a f’n break.
If a man sees politics as a career, and as a method of self promotion and self enrichment, then that man will vote in whatever way seems most likely to pereptuate a long career of "public service". When I see a Republican voting for ObamaCare, I know that this is a man with no principles -- a man who cares only for himself and the glorious life he can lead feeding at the public trough.
This is PRECISELY what is wrong with both parties.
Men of principle who wish to be real public servants will vote the right way and not pay attention to the fact that the Democrat machine has already started their campaign against them.
Politicians either think about what's best for the country or what's best for themselves. I know what kind of man Scott Brown is.
Baker and Tisei are anti-family. Baker himself said on social issues, he’s to the left of Obama. The last hour of yesterday’s Howie Carr Show was filled with callers saying they won’t vote for Baker. Plus Tisei was the only Republican to vote against the Income Tax Rollback. Tisei is also for RomneyCare.
How long before Cahill himself drops out? And would he endorse Baker?
A couple ardent pro-lifers called into Howie Carr yesterday to say they wouldn’t vote for anti-lifer Baker and instead vote for supposed pro-lifer Cahill. Under “vote for lesser evils” they are correct in an otherwise legitimate candidate field - key word LEGITIMATE.
This was the problem in some very few places with the 1990’s RTL party....though there were almost always legit prolife Repubs who could fulfill “lesser of (two) evils” concept, and thus could be voted for.
Cahill IS NOT A LEGITIMATE CANDIDATE (as a VERY few of REAL RTL party pro-lifers in 1990’2) and moreover IS NOT A LEGITIMATE PRO-LIFER.
THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS BAKER. PRO-LIFERS SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM OR NOT VOTE AT ALL. Cahill is simply a fake, a ruse.
He never voted for Obamacare so what are you talking about.
Baker screwed those insured with Harvard Pilgrim
by raising rates 150%, then claiming he saved the
Then he walked away to support RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.
Cahill better buck up with Dr. Stein if she is
against it, too.
Brown supported Romneycare in 2006, and he supported Obama's Jobs bill. I think both positions are unfortunate.
He did not vote for ObamaCare.
Would be good news, but Baker is a massive lib. Frankly, it can’t be any worse having Deval Patrick back in office, can it?
Hey there in Mass,,have you checked out the guy running against Barney Frank? Sean ,,shoot,,gotta find the article about him. Outstanding resume and business experience and he is about 10 points back! A virtual unknown. I am just wondering if Freepers can generate enough MO to get him some cash. Drudge has him as an ‘item.’
I’ll come back with more info. Don’t give up MASS, we need you!
I sent money, but I can’t vote for him because I’m not in the district.
Mass GOP Unknown within Striking Range of unseating Barney Frank! His name is Sean Bielat-
Here’s an excerpt -
“Bielat is 35 years old, a Marine who spent four years on active duty and is now a major in the Reserve. He’s a graduate of Georgetown University with a master’s from Harvard and an MBA from Wharton. He’s devoted a good portion of his professional life to manufacturing the high-tech robots that defuse improvised explosive devices in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, he’s a serious man.”
We should send this kid some DOLLARS!
I found the link on Drudge.
Me too, ClearCase. I’m sending some money to Sean. I can’t believe he is as close as he is!
“It’s just a flesh wound! Come on! Fight me!”
From a governor's point of view, I can't say - I'm lukewarm about Baker and his running "mate".
OTOH, a successful Baker at the top of the ticket is beneficial to all the more conservative lower-tiered candidates for State Rep and State Senate, as well as Connoughton, Polito, McKenna, and Cambell. If there is a Tea-party combined with Republican rout, it also can do wonders to defeat barney and niki, helping in the congressionals: Sean Bielat, Jon Golnik, Jeff Perry, etc.
Together we can. Deval thanks you for your support.
“This is Barack Obama. I want to thank you for supporting
my good friend Deval Patrick. I know you realize Charlie Baker is a fraud. Welcome to the Democratic Party. Perhaps
you can also support my good friend Barney Frank. Surely having him back in would be better than giving a Republican a chance. Forget the Republicans! Come to us, the Democratic
party. Yes, we can.”
Make a generous campaign contribution to Deval Patrick
today! Ensure that “hope” and “change” will continue
with the same party that currently dominates the Commonwealth. Don’t forget to vote for Patrick/Murray,
Grossman, Bump, Coakley, and all the Reps like Tierney,
Frank, Markey, etc. Thank you for your support!
-—Deval and Barack
I don’t really care who you guys get in MA - it’s a liberal sewer anyway - but just to be sure I understand, since the Republican candidates are insufficiently conservative, you’re going with the Marxist Patrick?
More on Patrick—the following is a comment from a reader to the Boston Globe:
It’s real simple.
Governor Patrick has been a complete failure.
He has failed to reign in spending.
He is afraid to make the tough decisions with regards to consolidating departments.
He has failed to deliver on his property tax relief promise.
He has increased the sales tax, which has hurt many small businesses.
He did not go far enough with his “supposed” pension reform.
He tried to give a hack job to Marian Walsh for 175K.
He hired his friend from Milton for a hack 125K job.
He coddles illegal aliens. He shows no backbone on this issue and has instructed the state police to IGNORE illegals and not report them to ICE.
There are many more reasons, but I need to get back to working on my business.
If you are middle class and want to get a fair shake and are looking for lower taxes and more opportunity, then you have to vote for Baker.
At the very least, he’ll be an offset against a leftwing loony legislature.
Scott Brown is no Jim Demint but he isn’t Arlen Spector either.
Scott Brown helped create the ground swell of the tea party movement that is today.It was his hard own hardwork that got him elected.I watched his campaign start off with about 10 people at rallies 3 months before the election to winning the seat by 111,000 votes.His win was an inspiration to tea partiers all over the country wether he is a moderate or not.
come on Charles Baker...
Excellent. Citizens in states should choose.
But, Romney CHOSE RomneyCARE (and his enforced
gay marriage where he overturned the Commonwealth’s
Constitution) without a vote.
Baker (installed by Romney) was installed without
a primary. Baker is FOR RomneyCARE.
No conservative should vote for FORCED candidates
who support FORCED antiConservative policies.
If you disagree with with one, you disagree with all.
Another “GOP unknown” from Massachusetts.
Not half as nauseating as a Socialist Slick Willardbot DIABLO and his radical gay running mate replacing him.
Of course it’s worse, it gets the MA GOP smeared with being no different than their Socialist Dem opponents. A Baker victory is Pyrhhic one.
Yes, offset by a 90% Democrat legislature for which Baker has ZERO leverage (even if he were center-right). You STILL can’t answer my questions about Baker, Raccoon, and that’s VERY telling. Ignoring me won’t make them go away.
What is a liberal Republican than a Democrat agent ? They’re worse than open Democrats. How do you think MA ended up with a nearly dead state GOP and 90% Dem legislature ? It wasn’t because of Democrats, it was because of liberal RINOs.
The fate of ObamaCARE will have nothing whatsoever to do with who wins the MA GOV race.
OTOH, defeating Obama’s buddy Deval Patrick will be a nice blow to Obama’s prestige and add to the national rejection of Obama and his minions.
“When I see a Republican voting for ObamaCare, I know that this is a man with no principles — a man who cares only for himself and the glorious life he can lead feeding at the public trough.”
NOT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR OBAMACARE!!!
Not Scott Brown.
“A complete failure”: now that sounds like just what MA is looking for!
Just leave all those MA ballots blank! Why compromise one’s principles over nothing?
Both arms and both legs off. Torso sitting in the dirt, still speaking: "Right, we'll call it a draw."
Black Knight: “Right, Ill do you for that,”
Arthur: “What are you going to do? Bleed on me?”
I love that movie.
Next best lines aside from the moose once bit my sister of course...,
