Did you know that the state Republican convention is next weekend? I confess I didn’t. Not that there’s a whole lot of suspense as to who the nominees for Governor and Lt. Governor are going to be. And, as far as I know, there still aren’t announced GOP candidates for Attorney General, Treasurer, or Secretary of State (one Earle Stroll is running for Auditor against Joe DeNucci). Kind of sad – the Green Party has a more complete slate than do the Republicans.
Here’s Howie Carr on next weekend’s big bash in Lowell:
Next weekendâs gathering in the Tsongas Arena is going to be Muffy Healeyâs political cotillion, and her dance card has a lot of openings on it. Mitt Romney wouldnât tell her if her Yolanda gown was on fire. Jim Rappaport hates her for obvious reasons. Ditto Christy Mihos, and Christy, if you really want to steal her thunder next week, just cut the price of regular unleaded gas at your convenience stores to $1.99 a gallon. Every TV camera in the state would be on the Cape. Youâll draw a bigger crowd than Muffy, thatâs for sure.
Seems about right to me.
UPDATE: Several alert commenters have pointed out that the GOP may indeed be fielding candidates for Attorney General (Larry Frisoli, of Curley case fame), and Treasurer (Ron Davy – see this post for more on him). Still no word on a Republican challenger to the winner of the Galvin/Bonifaz smackdown.
