UPDATE (Thursday evening): The event is now over, and you can replay the live-blog at the bottom of the BMG front page. Unfortunately, I have to say that it was a bit of a disappointment. Never really dug into the reasons why MA seems to do so extraordinarily poorly when it comes to contested elections. Oh well.
Our friends at MassINC do some of the most interesting and important work hereabouts. How, for example, could you possibly live without map-king Robert David Sullivan’s awesome breakdown of how MA will look in a Deval Patrick vs. Tim Cahill primary?
Anyway, Thursday evening MassINC is hosting a spiffy forum on the question of why we have so few seriously contested elections in Massachusetts. The panelists include Sonia Chang-Diaz, Charlie Baker, and Sam Yoon — all folks whose views on that question should be well worth hearing.
I’m told that wireless will be available, so assuming there are no technological issues, I’ll be live-blogging the event using our marvelous Cover It Live tool, starting at 6 pm. Tune in at 6 for the scoop!
Also, if you have any questions you think I should ask (other than “Mr. Baker, are you running for Governor?”), drop them in the comments, and I’ll see what I can do.
