Complete 2010 State Legislature Candidate Listing

by: MerrimackMan

Thu Feb 18, 2010 at 21:52:00 PM EST

( - promoted by Mike "DD4RP" Rossettie)

UPDATE: I'm going to repost this on a monthly basis, Added my last updates for now

Alright, because I have not seen this created anywhere else, and I heard a couple mumblings for one in the Comments on other posts, I decided to list as many of the candidates I know are running based on the OPCF filings and news articles that I have come across.

I have probably missed a whole bunch of candidates, but I feel this would be a good way to get the word out about our candidates, and too, find out about candidates that have only announced their campaigns to the many local papers across the Commonwealth. I have listed the candidates by Legislative District, and have also underlined races where I feel there should definetly be a Republican Candidate and, as far as I know, there has yet to be anyone to announce their intentions to run. However, this is not to say races without an underline would not be competetive.

I would have tried to include district demographics for each, but I simply don't have all the precinct results I would need for that yet, though I am working on it and may release it at a later date.

If you know about a candidate that is running, but I did not list here, let me know, and maybe we can keep this updated as we head towards November.

Lastly, I apologize for the length, but we have 200 State Legislative Seats. IT AIN'T MY FAULT!

Thanks (0.00 / 0)
That seems like a decent list.  The MassGOP Candidates Committee met last night in Burlington and went over their full list (which who knows, could be incomplete & thus lists like yours are especially helpful) with a fine toothed comb.  Even in my area I know of a couple more potential/probable candidates then you currently have listed.

That said, it's a good attempt.  Thanks!  

Well (5.00 / 1)
As a political outsider, thats about the best I could do.

The State Party seems to work with a high level of secrecy regarding stuff like this, hell the GOP State website does not list candidates, and the State House GOP website lists about 10 candidates outside of the Incumbents running.

On the Federal level its a completely different story. The names of potential Federal candidates always manage to get leaked, or posted by those at the NRCC or NRSC.
Maybe its a matter of interest on the level of the media, but for the State Legislature, it seems, at least for me, its hard to grasp the number of candidates running, and what sort of field is shaping up.

Then again, there wasn't much of a field in 2006 or 2008.

My guess is that the State Committee isn't going to roll out any public list until after signatures are certified & the candidates are official.

After all, our lists may have names of those who are tentative or may not wish to be known "at this time" for a variety of reasons.  Long story short, rather than out candidates we'll probably let them make their own announcements as they best see fit for themselves.

[ Parent ]
Quick Question (0.00 / 0)
Can the state party put the name of a candidate on a list on there website if there are two Republican candidates running? Does that constitute an endorsement? and is that against party rules?

Middlesex 8th District? (2.00 / 1)
Why do you think that there should be a Republican candidate in this district against Dykema? From what I've heard talking to people, Jonathan Loya's views are conservative and appear close to those of Republicans. I think he'll do well in the election.

sad to see Haley is not running again (0.00 / 0)
Sort of new to elective politics. Took the Leadership Institutes campaign manager school course, but I know that doesn't make up for real experience. They said that if you run and come up a little short the first time, RUN AGAIN.
I followed Dan's campaign closely, and he ran it really well. I guess he is too busy with the Baker campaign. It's too bad really.  

If I could not go to Heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all. -Jefferson

[ Parent ]
Then Why Doesn't He Run As a Republican??? (0.00 / 0)
I understand some people don't like the party apparatus, and think by joining with the party, they are associated with its faults. However, in his situation, running as a Republican in 2010 will most likely win him some extra votes. Some people necesarily write off Independent candidates for support and their vote, but joining the GOP I see little downside. He will establish himself with what support the Party can give him, and elevate his contender status. And if he feels like his ideology doesn't fit, people need to understand, parties like ours are for better and worse a big tent. We have people from Ron Paul to Sam Brownback to Richard Tisei. You can be yourself and be a Republican at the same time.

Terrific post and a real public service - Thank you! (5.00 / 2)
I would appreciate you also posting this at BlueMassGroup - or if you would rather, I will give this post a "shout out" there.

Though I am a Democrat, I read both sites daily because,l frankly, I get local political news I cannot get any where else.  For example, I found out from RedMassGroup that Dan Winslow was running - and posted about Rep. Greene retiring at BlueMassGroup.

A healthy democracy needs active civic participation across the whole spectrum.  Of cousre I think that HERE we also need a legislature that is subject to Open Meetings Laws, Open Procurement Laws, Cable, and FOIA - but that is another post for another day.

Make Open Meeting Laws apply to the Massachusetts House, Senate, and Executive - Sunlight and air are the best disinfectant

It is good to be well rounded.

heh - as to "well rounded" (0.00 / 0)
I certainly don't claim to be "lean and mean."

Merrimack - BEAUTIFUL job. (5.00 / 1)
Pres. Murray MAY have an opponent in Tom Keyes (R-Sandwich)

And I've spoke to two Atsalis challangers, and am waiting to hear if either/both go ahead.  But he WILL be opposed.

Likewise Tim Madden - at least one person on MV is interested in running, may have more info in about 10 days.

I feel like the Cape is going to be Center of the Republican Resurgence in 2010. Better take advantage of the situation.

17th Essex, Barry Finegold (0.00 / 0)
I guess I am asking if anyone else has heard this same rumor. The rumor moving through Andover, MA is that Erik Eldracher is out raising money to go after Barry Finegold (17th Essex) this November.  Can anyone out there substantiate that rumor?  I voted for Eldracher in 2004 and if he's running again this year, I am definitely ready to support him.
