This story in the Boston Herald perfectly demonstrates why it was so fortuitous for Democrats that Scott Brown decided not to run in the Massachusetts special election to replace John Kerry. According to the Herald some “heavyweight Republicans” are urging Tagg Romney to run.

For the past week the polling of Massachusetts had been mostly good news for Elizabeth Warren up until today. Four polls of the state early this week all found her leading by single digits, but a new UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll of likely voters has Scott Brown up by four.

I find this article in the Boston Herald a very interesting reflection of how quickly the politics of marijuana have changed in just the past few years. The back story is that in 2008 Question 2, a ballot initiative to decriminalize marijuana possession, made it on the ballot in Massachusetts. The measure was actively opposed by many district attorneys, the Attorney General and the Governor. Despite the opposition from top politicians in the state it ended up passing with an incredible 65.2 percent yes vote, garnering even more votes that President Obama.

Another poll confirms that the Massachusetts Senate race is currently shaping up to be one of the closest races in 2012 and could potentially be the race that decides which party controls the chamber. According to a new UMass Lowell-Boston Herald poll of registered voters, incumbent Republican Scott Brown holds a narrow 41 percent to 38 percent lead over Democrat Elizabeth Warren, and that gap can easily close.

In the Massachusetts governor’s race, Independent candidate Tim Cahill’s running mate, Paul Loscocco, has withdrawn from the race and endorsed Republican Charlie Baker. Defection by one’s own running mate is rarely seen as good news for a campaign.

it’s going to take a lot more than an AP article and a hundred petition signatures to secure a meeting with Brown. Here are some things you can do to help:
- SIGN the petition at change.org and ask all of your friends and family to do the same, especially if they are Massachusetts residents.
- CALL Brown’s D.C. office (202-224-4543) and his local office (617-565-3170) to ask whether or not Brown will meet with us before April 17.
- JOIN the Facebook group and ask your Facebook friends to do the same
- HELP us fight any misinformation or nativism that you see online regarding our meeting request.
Currently, we are not asking for any policy commitments from Sen. Brown. We are only asking for a simple meeting. We want Sen. Brown to hear the stories of immigrant youth who have been affected by the broken federal immigration system so that he can decide for himself what should be done. We believe that if Sen. Brown hears from these youth, who know only the United States as their home, that he will do the right thing.
