Hanging chads anyone? Seats still up in the air

(Republicans hold narrow leads in many of these races. – promoted by Paul R. Ferro)

The counting continues as provisional ballots arrive. Everyone should really be on guard.


Across Massachusetts, four races for state representative remained undecided as of Friday, and the wait is on to see whether any of the candidates will seek a recount.

“You have to ask the candidates,” said Brian McNiff, a spokesman for Secretary of State William F. Galvin.

Two of the undecided races are for legislative seats representing different parts of Worcester County. One is for a seat representing Amesbury, Salisbury, and Newburyport and another covers the towns of Rockland, Hanover, and Norwell.

Hang on folks. It’s going to take a while.

So when The new Gov takes over he is basically surrounded by a bunch of Patrick hacks and can’t fire them.
