“Off and Running” – Bob Massie Declares for U.S. Senate

 Bob Massie – Candidate for the US Senate in Massachusetts

Democratic activists and political junkies of a certain age (like me) will have little trouble remembering Bob Massie – the Democratic nominee for Lt. Governor in 1994 – others not-so-much! Seeing a notice that Bob Massie was the guest speaker at an upcoming Concord Democratic Town Committee meeting should have been an “alert” to what Renee Loth reveals in her Globe article today. Bob Massie is the first declared candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U. S. Senate in 2012! Massie has an impressive resume and quite a story to tell. And after all – isn’t that what boosts so many would-be candidates into the limelight? His story and this candidacy has legs. As the nomination process rolls out and we get closer to the June 2011 Massachusetts Democratic Party convention at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, expect to see and hear a lot more from Bob Massie. Who else will step into this political limelight?  A year out from the nomination endorsement vote – Lowell will be a hot political spot on June 3rd and 4th. Stay tuned.

    I forgot. Now I remember the name. I checked the website. He looks good on paper and in life. The Democrats could benefit from his mix of values and experiences. This feels fresh.

    Forty to one shot to win the Dem nominee (according to me). Will come in third (or worse) to two (or more) yet undetermined primary candidates. Book it.
