    "K B" asks:

    How does Khazei's $1.1 million raised by 9/30 affect the Senate race? And is there ANY way he can surmount the name-recognition barrier?

    Here we go, off and running with Ask Me Anything Day! First up, "Rob" asks:

    Speaking of innings, how psyched must Menino be that the Sox made the playoffs, so nobody in town could possibly find themselves accidentally taking interest in the mayoral race.

    Boston City Council president Mike Ross confirms for me that his chief-of-staff, Reuben Kantor, is leaving to join the Ayanna Pressley campaign for at-large city council.

    Kantor, who joined the political arena just a few years ago, has quickly become one of the city's top progressive operatives. "Ayanna will really benefit from Reuben's strength on both the political and the policy side," says Ross, who endorsed Pressley the night of the preliminary election.
