In Hingham yesterday at the Victory 06 BBQ hosted by Selectman Phil Edmundson, Congressman Bill Delahunt & Representative Garrett Bradley came out strong for support of South Shore candidates – one in particular, Matt Mulvey, running for State Senate in Plymouth-Norfolk. The crowd included top names in the state: Tim Cahill, Joe Kennedy (great nephew of Ted Kennedy, helping out with the reelection campaign), and other state reps, James Murphy and Bruce Ayers. All of the Democratic candidates there had no (real) opponents, and so regionally, money is being raised to generate awareness for Democratic issues and shared resources among all Democratic candidates, and not as much for specific candidates. For those of you not aware of this highly coordinate campaign, read more about Victory 06! on the MassDems website. One of the key beneficiaries of these events throughout the South Shore will be Matt Mulvey; Bill Delahunt, in his speech addressed the various failures of Republican administrations at the state and national level and asked all Democrats to help Matt Mulvey, in his race against an incumbent Republican. Matt will soon be holding another reception in Hingham, on August 15, and asks Democrats from across the state to attend or contribute to this very important race – see more at http://www.mattmulve…. The story about the Victory ’06 BBQ was covered on BelowBoston.com here: http://www.soapblox….
as well as on the front page.
In addition to a GOP, Delahunt also has a former Green running as an independent against him.
