Ah, a nice softball to start things off on Ask Me Anything Day -- "John" asks:
Who is going to win the 9th CD primary?
That would be incumbent 10th Congressional District Representative William R. Keating.
He was wicked vulnerable, as they might say in the new district, but DA Sam Sutter ain't gonna get it done with just $54k in the piggy bank as of June 30, on well under $200,000 raised for the cycle.
Taking two together; "BStarr" asks:
Is Stephen Lynch a lock in the new 8th?
...and "Ryan H." asks:
Does [Sam] Sutter have a chance against [incumbent Bill] Keating?
Yes, Lynch looks like he'll cruise to re-election without working up much of a sweat. And while I think Sutter is a strong candidate worth watching, I think he really needed a Cape candidate in the primary, whether state rep O'Leary or someone else, to take votes away from Keating in the new 9th. Tough to see how Sutter wins.
