"Lynch plans to run as a moderate alternative to Markey, who has been in Congress for three decades and has largely voted the Democratic party line. The tough-talking Lynch is opposed to abortion and voted against Obamacare, drawing the ire of other Democrats."
Anti-abortion, anti-ACA. Doesn't define "moderate" in my book. While I'm all in favor of the primary process introducing new blood, this guy just seems like a Republican-in-Dem's-Clothing.
I think some consultant has been feeding Lynch a line of bull, and plans to line his pockets at the expense of the Democratic Party.
