From the Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest, below the part about the House GOP being the most politically extreme Congressional caucus since at least 1879. It seems Capuano had some strong words for those seeking to anoint Ed Markey. Citing the report from the WBZ website, the money quote is:“It seems that the big names of our party are trying to choose our nominee for us. When I became Mayor of Somerville the establishment wasn’t with me. When I became a Member of Congress the establishment wasn’t with me. If I make this run it will be the same way—from the streets up, not from the elite down.”
Note the “if.” I wonder if he’s still considering it for real, or if he’s just making noise to save face. If he’s going to make a Senate campaign “from the streets up,” time’s-a-wasting.
DK also mentioned Ben Downing’s considering a run, Markey or no Markey.
