Coakley SEIU radio ad

    I had an email from MassEquality about electing the next senator this Tuesday, and I had the same reaction - the election is in January. I don't care how lame the other party's candidate may be - we do still have elections beyond the primaries. And one never knows what might happen between the primary and the general...
