The Second Suffolk legislator is finishing a fascinating primary race. With no Republican, it's either Wilkerson or second-time challenger Sonia Chang-Díaz. The primary winner gets the seat. It's all the more interesting because of the very similar, progressive platforms of both candidates. Chang-Díaz is banking on voter fatigue with Wilkerson's non-legislative problems. Just two weeks ago, Wilkerson accepted a plea bargain from the commonwealth for campaign-finance violations. We'll ask her how she'll differentiate herself from the challenger and whether voters agree with her that she's “closed the book” on the personal troubles.
