"Drew B." asks:
1) Does Navy Seal and Businessman Gabriel Gomez do any better in this
race than Marine and Businessman Sean Bielat did against Frank and
Kennedy? 2) How many of the Republicans actually make the ballot?
On part one, I'm gonna guess Gomez does well -- not winning kind of well, but not embarrassing the party kind of well. But I really don't know yet; in fact, some of us in the Massachusetts political press are not yet convinced that he's an actual person, and not a composite created by Republican consultants.
I'll also guess that Gomez gets the signatures he needs, and I'll give Dan Winslow the benefit of the doubt on that too. I don't expect anyone else to make it (see yesterday's post), but perhaps someone will surprise me.
