1. That's good news...

I can't stand Stephen Lynch, that guy is highly-conservative on social issues. While I expect Markey to beat Sulivan, let's NOT take this for granted as we did in the CHOKE-Ly vs. Brown race three years ago!

2. Coakley was running for the US Senate while she was currently holding the State Attorney Generals

position, and when Warren was running against Brown- she did not occupy any high profile office that prevented her from campaigning hard.

If the general election becomes closer than expected, would Markey be better of resigning his US House to focus his attention on getting elected to the US Senate.
