While they’re not on the ballot Tuesday, Gov. Deval Patrick and Sen. John Kerry, and by extension many others down the political food chain, have a lot on the line.
Patrick’s time in the corner office is up in 2014 and he says he plans to return to the private sector.
His plans to finish his term notwithstanding, an Obama win would generate buzz about a potential federal appointment for Patrick, who has been mentioned as a potential attorney general, Supreme Court justice and 2016 presidential candidate.
An Obama win could put Kerry in position to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and drag a whole host of potential candidates into a new high stakes scramble for the seat Kerry has long held. Brown’s win in 2010 was viewed by Democrats as a squandered opportunity and party chairman John Walsh has a lot invested in seeing that the seat formerly held by Kennedy goes to Warren.
Catholic Dems ask for no partisanship from pulpits
The Catholic Democrats are asking pastors and parish administrators to quell political activity in churches on the final Sunday before the national election.
Steve Krueger, president of Catholic Democrats, said he is hearing of people feel “unwelcome” at church because of leafleting and other partisan activity. A letter asks parish leaders to deputize church employees to remove pamphlets from outside groups and to tell people distributing political pamphlets to leave.
