Here we go again!!!
BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen.-elect Edward Markey hasn’t resigned from his House seat yet, but the campaign to replace him is already on.
On Monday, Democratic state Sen. Karen Spilka formally kicks off her campaign at her headquarters in Framingham.
She’s not the only candidate hoping to represent the 5th Congressional District.
Fellow Democrats Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, state Sens. Katherine Clark and William Brownsberger and state Rep. Carl Sciortino are also eyeing Markey’s seat.
By law, the special election has to take place within 160 days from the day Markey resigns his seat.
Election fatigue in MA was already setting in by the June 25th Gomex/Markey special election.
Do you think this is just one too many for MA voters? Could we set an all-time record low in voter turnout even as we battle it out elsewhere about the importance of our most precious right as citizens...voting.

I think it is refreshing that the candidates apparently actually live in the state.
It also disappoints me that they will all be a rubber stamp for the soft tyranny decending upon our once great land.
