Led by a Kennedy going down in flames to an old time US Senate Democrat Ed Markey….
And there are splits on the endorsement’s in this one…
And younger voters are polling with the old guy…
(They couldn’t vote when Markey made a lot of his votes in the Senate that where with the establishment..)
Progressives are hoping for a big night in Massachusetts as voters head to the polls in the state’s Democratic primaries on Tuesday.
Groups like the Sunrise Movement and Our Revolution Massachusetts have gone all-in for progressive insurgent and Holyoke, Mass., Mayor Alex Morse(D), who is taking on House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.).
Additionally, major left-wing figures such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(D-N.Y.) have waded into the race. The first-term lawmaker recently participated in an ad for Markey, with whom she co-wrote the Green New Deal. And her group Courage to Change has endorsed Morse, who has compared his race to Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary win against former Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) in 2018.
“That’s exactly what’s playing out here in this district,” Morse told The Hill. “While people are suffering, we have a congressman who’s using his power for corporations and special interests.”
The effort from the groups comes nearly two years after Justice Democrats supported then-progressive candidate Ayanna Pressley, who went on to unseat 10-term incumbent Rep. Mike Capuano (D) in Massachusetts….
