The Walsh campaign has announced an 11;45 a.m. endorsement at the Moakley Courthouse by state Sen. Therese Murray.
CommonWealth reports that the vast majority of outside money pouring into Boston is pouring into Walsh's coffers:
Super PACs and labor unions have upended Boston’s mayoral race, turning what was a relatively even spending contest between Rep. Marty Walsh and City Councilor John Connolly into a tremendously lopsided affair: An unprecedented amount of outside money has saturated Boston’s mayoral race, and more than $4 out of every $5 is lining up behind Walsh.
The Globe reports somebody is making negative push-poll calls to voters about Marty Walsh and that while the calls don't identify who's behind them, following the money suggests it's the Connolly campaign, which, of course, would never stoop so low, at least, not more than once every few years or so.
Both candidates would rather unite against the world with neighboring communities on economic development rather than engaging in internecine bickering, the Boston Business Journal reports.
Foes of the state plan to replace the Casey Overpass in Forest Hills shouldn't count on support from Connolly, the Jamaica Plain Gazette reports.
The Gazette also reports Walsh won't stand in the way of the project, but the Walsh campaign says that's just wrong, that in fact their candidate wants the state to reexamine the whole thing.
