Petrucelli Wins

As anyone who has driven through Eastie in the past month or two could have predicted (signs, signs, everywhere signs), Anthony Petrucelli coasted to victory in yesterday's special election primary for state senate. With no Republican on the ballot -- hello, Torky? -- the win means Tony P. will soon join the august 40-person body.

Revere city councillor Dan Rizzo ran a good race from what I could tell, and perhaps in a different race he'll ascend beyond Revere politics someday soon. Unfortunately for him, Petrucelli had all the backing he needed to win in that district, maybe especially in a low-turnout special election but I don't really think it would have made a difference. Plus, Petrucelli's a perfectly good candidate; frankly, he would have been a lot easier to beat from the right than the left.
