I’ve read innumerable articles about Democratic candidates for Congress coming out and saying they will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. Some 50 at last count. I’m not here to debate whether that’s a good choice for each candidate or the nation as a whole.
I’m here to ask if candidates in Democratic primaries for the Mass. House of Representatives are being asked that. We all know the greatest obstacle toward a progressive Massachusetts is Bob DeLeo, not Charlie Baker. The House can override whatever Charlie wants, but seems powerless against Bob. So, is this a regular question of Democratic candidates in competitive primaries, does anyone know if any candidate has stood against Bob’s methods killing progressivism in the dark? It would be hard for me to vote for such a woman or man if I had an alternative in September.
