Our own FieldGuy had it first, and now it’s semi-official: Tom Reilly has tapped state Rep. Marie St. Fleur (D-Boston) as his running mate. At least, that’s what campaign insiders are whispering to the AP.
Well, if that don’t beat all. Quick take: this is a bit of an annoyance for Deb Goldberg, whom St. Fleur had previously said she was supporting. This is an interesting change in strategy for Reilly, who has gone in a heartbeat from a really rich white guy to a not-rich black woman as his running mate. And this is a substantial shake-up to the Lieutenant Governor race, which has had more than its share of shake-ups lately! What will they think up next?
