Anyone who tells me that no election in Massachusetts is leaning GOP isn’t paying attention to stuff like this:
“You can call me an insider, but (Beacon Hill lawmakers) treat me like an outsider a lot of the time,” Patrick said during a wide-ranging interview with Herald editors and reporters yesterday. “We have differences. Some of them are sharp, most of them principled — but nonetheless we’ve been able to deliver the most productive legislative session in 30 years.”
Amid a throw-the-bums-out clamor and saddled with low job-approval ratings, Patrick worked to distance himself from State House leaders and even his own party — welcoming Scott Brown backers and invoking his battle with Democratic House Speaker Robert DeLeo over racinos as proof that he’s taken on the Democratic establishment.
When the democratic governor of the bluest state you can find is making the case that is an outsider and fighting the democratic establishment then Mr. Cook, start moving your races!
