If this is true, one of the most notorius DINOs in Massachusetts is using his kids for campaign reconnaisance. From today’s Lowell Sun column:
WHY WOULD a Methuen state senator take his kids trick-or-treating in Lowell’s Highlands?
Because it’s fertile ground in a potential race for Congress.
The senator in question is Steve Baddour, of Methuen, a former aide to U.S. Rep. Marty Meehan.
If Meehan runs for Senate in 2008, when Sen. John Kerry is next up for re-election, Baddour is viewed as solid replacement, hailing from the middle of the 5th District.
One can never prepare too early for these things. Particularly if Kerry puts his foot in his mouth again.
