I agree (5.00 / 1)
But can we still be disappointed at the egregious campaign run by Joe Malone?  I had hoped for better.

Yes,... (0.00 / 0)
...we can agree to be disappointed in the slimy campaign he ran. But it's over.
Malone, if he's got any class, will endorse Jeff pronto.

To much at stake (0.00 / 0)
I am happy to rally around our Republican candidates - to be fair, I am a big fan of both Perry and Mary Z, but nonetheless, too much is at stake for any of us to be on the sidelines during these next few, vital weeks...

Unite (5.00 / 1)
Joe Malone did not run a "slimy" campaign; he brought up legitimate facts about Perry's past that are sure to be a major issue in the general election. I always thought that he was much more electable, and he is every bit as conservative as Perry.  However, Malone people must get behind Perry ASAP and get a republican elected.

I agree (0.00 / 0)
Malone did not run a "slimy" campaign, he highlighted the issue of electability, which cannot be overlooked.  We may have been witness to a sneak peek of what is to come in the 48 days ahead. The upcoming will only exponentially more ugly and salacious...hold on to your seats.  Good Luck Jeff, you are going to need it.

If he was more electable he would have won the election (0.00 / 0)
Jeff Perry won 62%-29%.  He won North of the bridge.  He won South of the Bridge.  He won in the Cape and Islands.  He won in Plymouth County.  He won in Norfolk county.  He won among Republicans.  He won among unenrolled voters.

Jeff Perry raised more money.  He has more volunteers.  He has a stronger and more recent history of winning elections.

Get over it.  You lost.

big difference between winning in September and November (0.00 / 0)
based on such light voter turn out, the only people who came out to the polls were the very motivated, energized voters many of whom are the very conservatives which make up Perry's base.  
As the election nears and more of the independent voters become engaged and Keating ramps up the full blown attacks, we shall see how this all plays out.  My argument has always been about ultimate electability in November and it still remains to be seen if my assessment is correct.  Only time will tell.

[ Parent ]
No it doesn't (0.00 / 0)
Joe Malone already lost.  He already lost among unenrolled voters... overwhelmingly too.  Whatever number Perry gets, Malone's number would be worse.

Haven't seen the tally, Mike (0.00 / 0)
How many unenrolled voters took Republican ballots in the primary?

What was the % turnout among unenrolled voters?

Honest question, not trying to make a  point.

[ Parent ]
Typical turnout is close to even. (0.00 / 0)
I don't have the hard numbers for the 10th.  However, typical turnout is close to even between Republicans and unenrolled voters in our primaries.  In some cases unenrolled is significantly higher.  Perry would not be able to win more than 2:1 without winning among unenrolled voters as well.

"Never Head of Michael Graham." - Gabriel Gomez.

[ Parent ]
I'll get behind Jeff Perry, and (0.00 / 0)
I'll even refrain from repeating what a few of us have said before, but after the general election, will all you Perry Patriots be able to look backwards with clear eyes and finally acknowledge that at the end of the day, "electability" encompasses many elements?

I'll not make any further references to Jeff's vulnerability. But you guys can't be crying "hey no fair!" when the radio and tv spots begin.

I like Mary Z Connaughton for Auditor and Karyn Polito for Treasurer, and that's all I have to say to you. (0.00 / 0)
