Q&A #1: Mass Dems Convention

 "Bill" asks:

What will happen at the State Democratic convention in June? Will all the candidates (i.e: Grace Ross and Mike Lake) get the 15% needed to get on the primary ballot?

I can't predict with any confidence, because frankly the inner workings of state Democratic convention politics is far beyond my level of comprehension. I think Steve Murphy will get his 15% to get on as Treasurer against Steve Grossman. I think Grace Ross will get her 15% to get on as Governor against Deval Patrick -- if I was Patrick I would ask for her to be put on, but that might just be me. I think it's going to be tough for Lake, because he's got two big-name pols with institutional support, Guy Glodis and Suzanne Bump. I'd like to see him make it, but I don't know what his odds are.
