Q&A #5: Essex Primaries -- And Hudak!

"North Shore Politico" asks:

Any predictions on the 9th Essex House and Middlesex and Essex Senate primaries?

Also, for fun, what do you think Bill Hudak's percentage will be in the 6th GOP House primary? Will Charlie Baker and Richard Tisei vote for him on September 14th?

Boy oh boy, my crystal ball is getting a workout today. Those are two great races; I am not tapped into that 9th Essex race at all, but my guess is that Mark Falzone survives the challenge from Anthony Guardia. (Let me tell ya' though, some of these incumbents are having to work for the first time in years.) The Middlesex & Essex, for Tisei's seat, is a great one -- I've spoken with people who think Michael Day is going to win that, and others who insist Katherine Clark will win. I'll go with Day.

As for Hudak, I hear that McCarthy is working at it, but Hudak's got money, buzz, and the apparent support of what little GOP infrastructure there is up there. Also, for a lot of Republican primary voters this year, being attacked by the liberal media is a plus for Hudak. I think it's a lopsided primary win for him (65%+).

I think Baker will be asked, quite a few times, but will never answer the question. And, while we'll never know, I bet he leaves it blank.
