Brian Cresta Cost Charlie Baker an Ally in the Legislature

Mike Rossettie wrote today about how Bill Weld cost the Mass GOP a seat in the legislature.  Brian Cresta did exactly the same thing in a highly contested race on the North Shore.

Tom Lyons lost a close race to Ted Speliotis in Danvers, Peabody and Middleton.  Here are the numbers.

Cresta, the former Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman, who presided over consistent losses in the legislature for our party, endorsed the Democrat Speliotis over Tom Lyons and agreed to do a mailer with the endorsement for the Democrat.  

Cresta’s actions caused Lyons to lose a very close race, and easily could have tipped the scales going into election day.  After all a Democrat endorsed by a Republican Chairman can’t be all that bad, right?

If Cresta is on his town committee he should be removed immediately by the State Committee.

    This will be dealt with at the next State Committee meeting.  It is impossible for a political party to perform at a high level when people who are seen as a representative of that Party give aid and comfort to the enemy.  I am not certain what the outcome will be, that will depend upon the resolve of the State Committee.

    Remember also that Brown, Gomez and Tisei all in their own way are a part of this treasonous behavior.  The longer the State Committee stands pat, the longer it will continue.

    didn’t help either.

  • You’d need a pretty long memory to even place the name.  What the bleep is this guy doing?  

    You don’t see Lee Iacocca doing ads for Chevy do you?

    Or Bill gates doing ads for Apple?  

    The difference is that those CEOs believe in their brands.

    BTW: where can I see town by town results?  

    Also, how many seats did the GOP gain/lose in the House and Senate?
