And we Democrats were worried about a Democratic Primary!
The indomitable Sean Bielat, two-time candidate for Congress filed papers so he could toss his hat into the ring. A formal announcement is planned, but Springfield Republican reports:
Former Republican congressional candidate Sean Bielat has formed a campaign committee to mount a run for U.S. Senate.
Bielat filed papers with the Federal Election Commission this week to form the “Sean Bielat for Senate” committee. He filed an official statement of candidacy at the same time….
Bielat joins Republicans competing for the seat including ex-Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez, state Rep. Daniel Winslow of Norfolk, former Nantucket selectman Douglas Bennett of Dorchester and former Ashland selectman Jon Fetherston.
State Sen. Bruce Tarr, R-Gloucester, and former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan are also contemplating jumping into the race.
Two candidates with no experience, two candidates with little experience, and poor Dan Winslow, who can at least claim relevant legislative experience.
If all five candidates actually make the ballot, the Republican Primary could turn into a crap shoot.
