I’m almost certain that I caught
State Senator Dianne Wilkerson doing something slimy earlier today. The only problem
is that I’m too lazy to pursue the mundane dirty work required to weave my
hunch into a credible story. The truth is, despite living in the Second Suffolk
Senate District, I could care less about who wins this race.
The opponents in happier days (for Wilkerson, at least)
I’m trying to be
as objective as possible with this Wilkerson vs. Chang-Diaz showdown. I
recognize merits in both candidates, and I absolutely believe that the former
has the right to continue fighting for her seat; even if she lost the primary
Wilkerson’s Jamaica Plain and Beacon Hill supporters
who are unfamiliar with the Grove Hall area likely had no problem finding the
senator’s first post-primary rally last night. No matter which direction people
arrived from there were hordes of red-shirted Wilkerson enthusiasts greeting
folks and hoisting signs as if the eight-term incumbent hadn’t lost to
political newcomer Sonia Chang-Diaz less than one week earlier.
