“There’s no time for a learning curve for anybody. I think this is really a year for incumbents, because you don’t want to miss a beat. That’s my gut,” he said, explaining that it typically takes a freshman legislator up to a year to get acclimated.
Brown ran unopposed in 2006, and my thinking then, as it is now, is that if any credible Democrat runs against him it will be a competitive race.
2008 will be a bad year for incumbents, especially right-wing Don Quixotes like Brown. There will be a lot of Mass Dems in ’08 ‘fired up, and ready to go’ (C).
UPDATE PatrickA notes that the OCPF lists a newly-formed committee for Sara Orozco of Needham.
