2010 Election- Massachusetts Candidates- April Edition

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

Updated With Comments 4/5/10

With the filing deadline for this November’s candidates fast approaching on April 27 and May 4th, I thought I’d go ahead and update my previous post listing the candidates that are currently seeking office.

As with last time, I have underlined races where to my knowledge there is no Republican running, but only when I felt like the race certainly deserves our attention.

I have bold-faced the Republican candidates for viewing ease, and I have added candidates for the US House of Representatives.(Previously just listed Statewide and Legislative Candidates)

Currently the GOP is Challenging

All Statewide Offices

9 of 10 Congressional Districts

22 of 40 State Senate Districts

74 of 160 State Representative Districts

If you know about a candidate that is running, but I did not list him/her here, let me know!!!!

About MerrimackMan

  • Coakley-rivera has an opponent named Anthony Ottey.  and Peter Mcnair (r-agawam) will be running against Sandlin.

  • Thanks for taking the time to update. As you posted, it is an OPEN SEAT here and people are fired up over the prospect of a Republican winning back this distict. Any one wanting more info can find out more by visiting our page on Facebook (and adding us) or by visiting RichBastien.com Keep up the good work!

  • For the Second Barnstable – Steve Brennan lives in Bass River (South Yarmouth)

    For Cap &  Islands Senate Seat – Mark Forest lives in Yarmouth Port.  He has been on Delahunt’s staff since he was elected, and before that was on the staff for Gerry Studds.

  • NorthShoreRich

    Kinda surprised no one is running against Berry.  Figured someone would go for that state senate seat from the Republican side.

  • Hopkington Selectman.

    His ad is on the right side of this website.

  • Last I heard from him (last week) Dave Sukoff wasn’t running in the 6th Congressional. Not sure if Rick Baker is still in an R primary.

    I’m still looking for someone to run against Erlich in the 8th House district. Almost had a good one.

    Thanks for your list. CLT will soon be posting the candidates its PAC has endorsed so far on the CLT website.

  • Great to see a list of all the races. A very, very minor change for the 10th Congressional list. Maryanne Lewis lives in Scituate, not Mashpee. Ironically I believe she and Joe Malone live about ten houses apart!

  • It it Sam MEAS, not Maes. an innocent error, I’m sure.  

  • Dan Bennett, selectman from Danvers, is running against Ted Speliotis.  This district was a big win for Scott Brown.

  • According to the Politics1 Massachusetts page, someone named George Burton from the Massachusetts Constitution Party is running in the Eighth Congressional District, but that’s all the info that I have. If George is, either, running at all, still running, or not running, I don’t know the answer for sure. Is anybody out there from the Massachusetts Constitution Party who can supply all of the definitive answers to this?

  • Marc A. Kurzberg is running for the 5th Norfolk seat vacated by Joseph Driscoll(D).  He’s a young guy, about 21 years old.  Helped on the Brown and now helping on the Baker campaign.

  • Joe wagner has an opponent. the feared Matt Hernk (R-Chicopee) who is a frequent of the massrepublican forum… or used to be at least:-)

  • jconway

    Im surprised Libby Firenze decided not to take on Brownsberger again. While she did lose by 20 points she ran a good campaign, was a good fit for the district, and could be running on an anti-Patrick wave this year. I do hope someone challenges my rep.  

  • 22nd Middlesex (OPEN-Greene-D)

  • Congressional Candidate Lieutenant Colonel Allen West

  • My original Democratic opponent, Plainville Selectman Robert Fennessy, withdrew from the race two weeks ago.  Another Plainville Democrat, Attleboro City Assessor Stanley Nacewicz, is now circulating nomination petitions and will announce soon.  It’ll be good to have some competition across the aisle.  For campaign updates, please sign up at http://www.danwinslow.com.
