Happy Ask Me Anything Day! "Fall River Conservative" asks:
In the MA-04 GOP primary... will Steinhof win due to constant back and forth sniping of Bielat and
Childs? I sure hope so, because he seems like the True Conservative out
of the three candidates!
Hmmm....congressional candidate David Steinhof is a "Fall River Conservative" - are you related?
I think it's reasonable for me to expect our local dailies to be repositories, and dispensaries, of vast stores of Kennedy knowledge and trivia.
So I was a little disappointed in the Globe's Mark Arsenault, who listed only six names in his piece about congressional candidate Joe Kennedy III's fundraising (bolding mine):
Boston City Councilor Mike Ross, who had opened an exploratory committee to consider running for Congress, in the district where Barney Frank is retiring, announced today that he has decided against running. He will remain in his current council seat, which he has held for 12 years.
Ross was the last significant Democratic pol known to be looking at that race, since Joseph Kennedy III announced his interest in running.
