DailyKos Endorses Markey

Nice, and not a surprise. Yes, you can contribute to Ed here. - promoted by charley-on-the-mta

Joan McCarter, writing for Daily Kos:

 When it comes to filling the Senate seat recently vacated by John Kerry, Democrats have as clear a choice as it gets. And for progressives, there’s only one option: Rep. Ed Markey.

This would be the case even if his opponent wasn’t Rep. Stephen Lynch, who likes to call himself a “moderate” but is in reality very conservative, with a long anti-choice voting record. He voted against the Affordable Care Act. He voted for the Iraq war and voted against a timeline for withdrawal. He’s also flip-flopped on gun safety and on gay rights. Indeed, when Lynch first ran for Congress in 2001, he portrayed himself as “the conservative candidate.”

Beyond the endorsement — expected but nice — this means a chance for Markey to enjoy some of the ActBlue fundraising that helped Warren over the top.

    It appears to me that only the Progressive Candidate is getting endorsements outside of Waltham. Woo Hoo!
