42. She was coming out of an all Democratic primary
and she sat on her lead.

Brown ran a very good campaign and he has caught a wave of anger in Massachusetts. Ed King caught that wave in 1978. Tag line from that election: "We put all the hate groups in one pot and let it boil." Same thing only different.

Massachusetts Democrats hold 89% of all elected offices in this state. 88%. Gee, wonder who the anger is directed at in this "change" election?
