Many of us will gather in Worcester tonight and tomorrow for the Democratic State Convention. I suppose I’m not one to talk, but I’ve hardly seen anything about our candidates on BMG whereas other years this site has been very active with candidate promotions (and occasional detractions) right before the convention. Tonight we will re-nominate by acclamation Senator Elizabeth Warren, AG Maura Healey, TRG Deb Goldberg, and Auditor Suzanne Bump. Tomorrow we will endorse candidates for Governor (Jay Gonzalez v. Bob Massie), LG (Quentin Palfrey v. Jimmy Tingle) and SoC (Bill Galvin v. Josh Zakim). My understanding is that there will be a unified ballot conducted in both traditional and electronic formats, and since no races have more than two candidates we are guaranteed endorsements on the first ballot. Maybe this means we will adjourn at a reasonable hour tomorrow. Please use this as an open thread on all things convention, whether it’s to weigh in on the candidates or comment about the events and logistics.
