And we're off. With 21% of the precinct vote in, Republican Gomez leads Democrat Markey 52.7% to 46.9%.
Go here for results as the votes are counted ( Town by town results):
“RINO or Democrat”
What’s the difference?
it will be just like the last cheat...Lynn, Salem, Lowell , Lawrence , Revere, Chelsea,
Boston + environs, Worcester and Western MA where the “Smith college” lunatics live.
Take your pick.. low voter turnout..it’s hot! 105% turnout in these districts.
Yea...like immigration for example.
If Gomez loses, does that mean the Eight Gangbanger’s amnesty is in trouble? Massachusetts isn’t ready for a non-white guy Senator.
Not drop. But I had to swallow what was coming up.
I’d feel dirty going on that whack job site , no thanks I’ll see updates here.
Markey now slightly ahead and looks like he will win something like 52-48.
The little I’ve read on this race, the RINO is way behind in the polls.
So, Markey is a better choice?
So the founders were wrong? Yes or no.
Liberalism isn’t a choice. It’s a problem.
That's because the Democrats know how to keep everyone on the same page. The GOP elects people who will stab our side in the back repeatedly. They may elect a conservative Democrat here and there, but By God, that person will vote the party line 100% of the time it is needed. Why waste an effort to elect a Scott Brown or one of the Maine sisters when they undercut the conservative bills at every turn? Frankly I couldn't care less who wins this one. If Gomez wins, that's better, but not by much. He's immediately vote with the Dems repeatedly in a feudal attempt to win in reelection in 16 months.
In the long run, it probably doesn’t make much difference.
Yup and cause even more damage to the right.
To be completely clear, if Jeb Bush was running in the next election and Obama was allowed to run, I would not vote for either.
They have a Native American woman Senator in the other seat, Warren. She’s white as a ghost but claimed to be a Cherokee from Oklahoma. She said it was in her high cheek bones. No joke, sadly.
How many votes does it take to control the Senate? 60. So, how many times do you think that Markey will vote to help you get to 60? Zero. How many times will Gomez vote to help you get to 60? More than zero depending on how much pressure you can put on him, how and where you can scratch his back, and any number of other factors. Bottom line is that political control is a numbers game and you need to know how to play it. Those who don’t know how are called losers.
You expected more from Massachusetts than a RINO? That will always be the best you could achieve in Kennedyville.
Just stop ducking and answer the question. Were the founders wrong that it is better to have an enemy before you than in your ranks or not?
Or are you good with ever more liberalism in the ‘opposition’ party?
