Worcester primary wrapup

Mary Keefe wins Democratic primary for state rep, will presumably win election. She has run for City Council in the past and not done that well; in this election she soundly defeated, among others, long-time and very popular City Councilor Kate Toomey.

I don’t live in that state rep district, but based on the election mailers Jeremy Shulkin has collected and shared online, the Keefe team used the most consistent capitalization and punctuation of the primary campaign.

T&G has a good column on Tea Partiers coming into Worcester as “agitators” allegedly “intent on intimidation and voter suppression.”

These folks are reportedly worried about liberal Worcester activists registering “disenfranchised people” to vote. Expect that word choice to be mocked in the coming weeks.

Nicole has a little commentary and followup.
