  • Scott Brown looking strong in initial special-election polling (For John Kerry's seat)

    Maybe Scott Brown will become the Manny Mota of politics — the guy who excels at pinch-hitting. After having just lost a statewide election to hold onto the seat he won in a January 2010 special election, Republicans want him back as their nominee if John Kerry gets his expected Secretary of State appointment. And according to a new poll from Boston’s NPR affiliate WBUR, Brown leads all of the expected Democratic candidates, too (via Sarah Rumpf): WBUR poll of 500 registered voters finds U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is in a strong position should there be a special election to...

    Now, lets look at the facts here. Five former and one current Mayor assembled for a rally for Elizabeth Warren in Worcester, Massachusetts. Since no one else showed up to attend the rally, there were more Mayors there than regular people. Almost everyone in attendance was a Mayor. When I used to do event planning for a living I used to have nightmares about things like this: planning an event for months, working hard to bring everything under budget, inviting scores of peopleand no one would show up. That never happened to me, THANK GOODNESSbut I would seriously wake up...

    True conservatives have more than a handful in fighting both Democrats and Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) at the federal, state and local levels. It is a shame that we have to fight our own party to keep our Constitutional, Representative Republicfrom being completely removed from life support by political death panels of both parties. Brian Camenker of the pro-family organization, MassResistance, has given us a sickening report on the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) throwing a huge amount of money into the campaign of an openly homosexual leftist in Massachusetts who is running as a Republican for Congress.

      National GOP establishment lavishly funding liberal homosexual activist Richard Tisei for Congress in Massachusetts. Has long record of outrageous activity. Is this a warning where the Republican Party will go in the next few years? POSTED: October 14, 2012 The Republican establishment in Washington is pouring enormous amounts of money -- over a million dollars -- into Massachusetts to elect an aggressive, anti-family homosexual activist to Congress. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei is known as an openly "gay" liberal Republican politician who ran for Lt. Governor in 2010. Prior to that as a State Senator, among other things he...

But there was one subject most people watching probably did not know about, Elizabeth Warrens private legal representation of The Travelers Insurance Company in an asbestos-related case.

    Clearly, there is not much left of the good-old-boy network when it comes to former governors of Massachusetts. This was made abundantly clear before, during and after the Democratic Party Convention, when Gov. Deval Patrick, who followed Mitt Romney in the governor's office, and former Gov. Michael Dukakis, who preceded him, went after the GOP presidential nominee with a vengeance. Patrick hit him high and Dukakis hit him low. If this were a Sunday NFL game, the referee would have called the two Democrats for unnecessary roughness -- piling on. Dukakis was and is particularly tough on Romney. He has...

    There have been several polls released recently, showing everything from a virtual dead heat to Elizabeth Warren ahead by low single digits. This was a contrast to pre-DNC polls, which showed Brown ahead by low single digits. Clearly Warren received a convention bounce, almost entirely from increased support from Democrats. Warren supporters in the left-blogosphere have all but declared victory. The question, however, was whether Warrens convention bounce would last. A U.Mass-Lowell/Boston Herald poll released tonight indicates that perhaps Warrens lead is not so clear, or that her bounce has faded. Brown is up 50-44 among registered voters and 49-45...

"You know what, in Massachusetts, it's a lot easier to be gay than be a Republican," he says, "as far as trying to get elected to office." But Tisei could make political history for the Massachusetts GOP. Not just because they could win their first U.S. House seat in 15 years, but also because Tisei would be the first openly gay Republican to be elected to a term in Congress. Republicans are generally long shots to get elected in this solidly Democratic state. But Tisei's upset bid is...

    US Senator Scott Brown continues to enjoy strong favorability ratings and would defeat any of the Democrats -- including Governor Deval Patrick -- who have been mentioned as potential challengers, if the election were held today, according to a new Suffolk University/7 News poll. The poll indicates that former US Representative Joseph P. Kennedy II would pose the strongest challenge to the Republican senator. In a hypothetical head-to-head race, Kennedy would receive 40 percent of the vote to Browns 45 percent.
