Report from the Democratic Convention in Springfield

Report from the Democratic Convention in Springfield

Saturday, Democrats from across the commonwealth gathered in Springfield for the 2012 endorsing convention. Elizabeth Warren secured 95.8 percent of the vote and took the nomination — her challenger, Marisa DeFranco, failed to get the 15 percent delegate vote required to keep her in the primary. I was there, representing Milford, and I also worked for the Warren campaign, greeting delegates and helping them find their seats. It was a great way to spend a rainy Saturday!

Watch out, Scott Brown — there's a smart, capable woman running against you, and it's time to start talking about the issues and your voting record — smears about her heritage aren't going to be enough to return you to Washington!
