The Phoenix's David Bernstein tweets that SEIU's New England political director Mac D'Alessandro will challenge US Rep. Steve Lynch in the Democratic primary. Lynch's old rival Phil Dunkelbarger is already in the race.
As everyone here likely knows, Lynch was slow in coming around to supporting the public option, and then voted against health care reform, providing a series of utterly incoherent justifications for that.
In addition, Lynch seems to have actively antagonized any number of former friends and allies: Even Lynch's former best friends and allies in labor, House leadership, and the Obama administration have had reason not just to be disappointed in his votes, but to ask … what's up with that guy?
Here's Mac D'Alessandro's campaign Facebook page, already up. Don't know about a campaign website.
