    US Representative Barney Frank, the powerful House committee chairman and influential Democrat, easily won re-election today after holding off a challenge from Republican Sean Bielat. After a scare, Frank surged to victory, winning 61 percent of the vote to Bielat's 36 percent, with 62 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.

    BOSTON (FOX 25 / - The Secretary of State William R. Galvin says voter turnout is expected to reach record highs. He's projecting a bigger turnout in districts with highly contested congressional races. So far, Barney Franks' district has one of highest turnouts ion the state. In Newton and North Attleboro, the lines were forming before the polls opened and the flow has been steady all day. People we spoke to say they're coming out to vote on tax issues. The questions on the ballot were important to them. Some wanted to vote against the incumbent others felt it...
  • Wow: Charlie Cook moves Barney Frank’s seat from “likely Democratic” to “lean Democratic” GO SEAN!!

    Remember, as of just a few weeks ago, this seat wasn’t even on the board. Then, for the first time in decades, MA-4 popped up in the “likely Democratic” column. And now, if you’ll pardon the pun, it’s moved a bit further to the right. I was thinking yesterday after I wrote that post about Bielat’s internal polling that maybe it wasn’t what it was cracked up to be: The topline number was conspicuously omitted (why would a pollster ever do that?) and the data was 10 days old (are the more recent numbers so grim that they had to...
  • The Most Important Day Isn't Tuesday--It's THURSDAY (Rare Opportunity in Bay State)

    What will you be doing one week from right now? The most important date in this election isn’t, as Massachusetts Democrats want us to believe, 1991, or 1998, or even this Tuesday, Election Day. The date you should focus on like a laser beam is Thursday. Tuesday you vote. Wednesday is the postgame show. But Thursday will be the first day you fully comprehend the consequences. How are you going to feel if the Massachusetts you wake up to that morning is exactly like the one you’re living in today? How will you feel if, after four years of higher...

    In a district where Scott Brown won, Sean Bielat mounts a serious challenge. 'I don't consider myself a tea party candidate," Sean Bielat tells me over dinner. "I don't know what it means." But an hour later Mr. Bielat, Rep. Barney Frank's Republican challenger, receives a hero's welcome at the Spindle City Tea Party, a gathering of nearly 200 citizen- activists in this economically depressed mill town. As he approaches the stage, they stand, applauding and chanting "Go, Sean, go!" What he tells them is consistent with this reporter's view of the tea party: "I'm starting to think that people...

    Martha Coakley was going to run unopposed for Attorney General here in Massachusetts after getting soundly defeated by Scott Brown (Yes, I know many here aren't fond of him anymore). Once an attorney in Milbery, MA, Jim McKenna, heard this he ran a write in campaign, and with the help of some friends received more than twice the needed 10,000 write in votes (unheard of for a Republican in Massachusetts). Well I wanted to get this out to the Mass Freepers, make sure you vote for this man in November, and check out his web site. ANd if you...

    Thursday morning, August 12, there was a debate on Rush Radio with Jeff Katz. It was the first time both candidates had debated each other. Although the Bielat campaign had refused to debate Sholley for many months now, they finally relented and allowed the debate to take place even if it was at the absurd time of 7:00 AM At the moment a poll at the Fleming and Hayes website has Sean Bielat (46%) and Earl Sholley (54%) out of a sample of 1522 voters.
  • MassResistance warns of push to purge Tea Parties of "social" issues.

    This past Tuesday evening Brian Camenker of MassResistance addressed the Plymouth Rock Tea Party in Pembroke. Also making speeches were several well-known politicians and candidates. Two days earlier, on Sunday, a Tea Party on the Lexington Battle Green was shut down by "fiscal-only" Republicans who were upset that "social issues" would be discussed if Brian Camenker of MassResistance were present. Almost immediately after that, a member of the Plymouth Rock Tea Party (which has recently merged with the Cape and Islands group) contacted Camenker and said, "We heard what happened. Come on down and speak at our event on Tuesday."...

    Republican Richard Ross claimed the state Senate seat formerly held by Scott Brown as his Democrat opponent conceded a GOP victory last night, in a contest viewed as a referendum on Brown’s stunning U.S. Senate victory, experts said. Ross, a Wrentham state representative, defeated Democrat Peter Smulowitz, a doctor and political newcomer from Needham, not only reaffirming Brown’s win but giving the GOP added momentum heading into the November election. “Republicans can say this is a harbinger of things to come in November,” said political analyst Lou DiNatale. “Republicans want to say this is a trend.”

    Shuns challenger who promised "pro-family" judges. Conservatives sell out in droves. The Massachusetts Republican Party has nominated the most extreme pro-homosexual, anti-family candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor ever to run as Republicans for a state's top offices. Predictably, the results were greeted by cheers in homosexual blogs and websites across the country.  The delegates to the Massachusetts State Republican Convention last Saturday overwhelmingly nominated Charlie Baker for Governor and his hand-picked running mate Richard Tisei for Lt. Governor. As some observers put it, the RINO takeover of the Massachusetts Republican party is now complete. Vast numbers of social conservatives...

    But let's take a look at the situation here. Current Democratic Governor Deval Patrick, a close ally of President Obama, has helped run the state into the ground after Governor Romney straightened out a lot of the state government. Patrick won 55%-35% in a three-way race in 2006. Now he suffers from anemic approval ratings and in any other state would appear vulnerable. But this is Massachusetts.

    WORCESTER - Republican Christy Mihos was muscled out of the GOP primary today as gubernatorial candidate Charles D. Baker took 89 percent of the delegate vote, leaving Mihos with just 11 percent, according to unofficial estimates. A buoyant Baker took the stage along with his family and running mate Sen. Richard Tisei. “We have a job to do and that job starts today,” Baker said. “And it’s to take our state back from the Beacon Hill insiders and status quo-ers and non-reformers and give the people of Massachusetts the state government they deserve.” Mihos needed just 15 percent of the...

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, whose stunning victory in January was fueled in part by Tea Party anger, has snubbed the fiery grassroots group and declined its invitation to join Sarah Palin Wednesday at a massive rally on Boston Common, the Herald has learned. Brown’s decision to skip the first big rally in Boston by the group whose members are credited with helping him win election has some experts saying he’s tossed the Tea Party overboard, as he prepares for re-election in 2012.

    Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was never planning to attend a tea party rally featuring Sarah Palin this week in Boston, his staff told POLITICO, and did not intend his absence to come off as a snub. Brown spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told POLITICO that coming off of a two week legislative recess, Brown had always planned to be in Washington this week. Brown drew notice Monday after the Boston Herald reported that Brown was skipping the rally. In a story headlined “Scott Brown snubs Sarah Palin, bags Tea Party rally,” Herald reporter Edward Mason wrote that “Brown’s decision to skip the...

    In an extraordinary move, the Massachusetts House of Representatives added language to the "anti-bully" bill to align it with the goals of a major homosexual activist group. (Luckily, it does NOT include the "hate speech" language that was in the original version -- which we helped get removed.) At the center of this bill is GLSEN, the "Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network". GLSEN is an aggressive and militant homosexual national activist group which targets children in the public schools. GLSEN's goal is to normalize homosexual behavior to school children, often in a very graphic manner. Here in Massachusetts, they were...
