Today is the special election for the state senate seat in the 4th Middlesex District. Running for the open seat are Republican candidate Brion Cangiamila, Democrat candidate James Marzilli, Jr., & Constitution candidate Thomas Fallon. Turnout is expected to be low so the candidate with the best GOTV will win. Having been a former selectman & a former state rep, Cangiamila is no babe in the woods when it comes to campaigning. He has a decent shot – especially if the state party puts as much resources into this race as possible. Marzilli currently works as a state rep & is well respected in liberal circles. The Democrats are working hard to get him elected & thus he holds an advantage in this race. Fallon is making a lot of noise here at RMG but to date I haven’t heard anything about him from my contacts in the district. It remains to be seen if he’ll have any impact on the race. Comments, anyone?
