Again, in a very progressive district, there’s not much ideological daylight between the candidates. Votes are going to be based on personal connections, which are strong and built over many years for both Friedman and Garballey. Both Friedman and Garballey are based in ferociously-active Arlington, which will doubtless punch above its weight in voter turnout, as usual. Both were well-funded, deluging the district with mailers and lawn signs. I’m guessing that Stewart, less well-funded and known, will come in third. But what do I know?
