So that’s that ….via Twitter:
@MikeCapuano: Thank you for all your good wishes. Though I won’t enter the US Sen. race, I look forward to continuing to fight for the Citizens of the MA
Not too surprising. The only sitting Congressman left potentially facing Markey is Steve Lynch. The Herald got a little scooplet with the head of IBEW Local 103 Mike Monahan calling Markey a “weak candidate”, which sounds like he wants Lynch. Funny, Monahan says he’ll join up with Markey if Tom Menino really really wants him to, which sounds like an invitation to Mr. Mayor.to do exactly that.
Lynch would not defeat Markey. It’s a progressive-leaning primary; Lynch is anti-abortion. and did such a Clown-shoe Hamlet act over health care that he pretty much gave up any goodwill most Dem primary voters would have for him.
Anyone else? Rabbi Pesner?
