Rick Green & The Latest Ad in MA 3

The last time we saw Rick Green on this blog was the last day I was a mem­ber of the GOP Mr. Green after los­ing a very, shall we say inter­est­ing elec­tion for GOP party chair urged his sup­port­ers to for­get what had hap­pened and get behind the new GOP chair and the party.

Five years later Rick Green in run­ning in my dis­trict for con­gress and has a new ad out

Now Green has an uphill bat­tle, the con­ser­v­a­tive cen­ter of the state has been carved into as many dif­fer­ent dis­tricts as pos­si­ble to dilute the vote and the anti-​Trump left is mobilized.

On the plus there is the Trump econ­omy ben­e­fit­ing the entire region and Pres­i­dent Obama help­fully remind­ing vot­ers of how times were before Trump and acti­vat­ing GOP activists who already fondly remem­ber Green. Finally Green is not only is he con­tend­ing for an open seat but the recount in the 3rd dis­trict race has the poten­tial to divide Democ­rats come elec­tion day.

Mass­a­chu­setts Sec­re­tary of State William Galvin has offi­cially ordered a district-​wide hand recount in the 3rd Con­gres­sional District.

The recount comes after Demo­c­ra­tic can­di­date Daniel Koh filed a suf­fi­cient num­ber of sig­na­tures to request the recount.

Under state law, the boards of reg­is­trars in each city and town in the dis­trict must now set a date to recount all Demo­c­ra­tic bal­lots cast in their com­mu­ni­ties in the Sept. 4 state pri­mary. The recount in each munic­i­pal­ity must be com­pleted by Sept. 17.

Can­di­date Lori Tra­han is claim­ing a 122-​vote vic­tory in last week’s Demo­c­ra­tic pri­mary race against Koh.

No mat­ter how the recount turns out, some­one is going to be angry.

And finally there is the excep­tions game, this seat is under everyone’s radar in a year when Democ­rats are feel­ing good about themselves

Just like 2010.

I haven’t had a lot of time to watch this race I wouldn’t be sur­prised it it doesn’t end as some peo­ple expect.
