Approaching Poll Closing...

...and the WBZ radio governor's debate...

Turnout is low and lower around the state. Boston was a hair under 12% as of 6:00, which is dismal. But turnout is high -- 20% and up -- in Southie and West Roxbury. That's thanks to the hot state rep races, in addition to Steve Lynch and others.

From my conversations with people throughout the day, about turnout and other factors, my sense is that things have generally favored Bump and Murphy, rather than Glodis and Grossman -- but in both cases, it's hard to know whether those advantages are enough to win.

I am hearing of better turnout on the Cape, which should bode well for O'Leary over Keating, and Perry over Malone, in the Congressional primaries. It could also mean that the Cape could be the key to whether Bump and Murphy can get to victory.

Much more later. For live updates and info all evening, please follow me on Twitter at
