Election roundup: Connolly gets some endorsements, too

O'Malley with Dog

Councilor Matt O'Malley pets a dog named Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In JP, of course.

State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, State Sen. Sal DiDomenico and City Councilor Sal LaMattina all endorsed John Connolly yesterday. Michlewitz called him:

A progressive leader who understands the importance of keeping families in the city by transforming our schools, creating more affordable housing options, and building safe and healthy neighborhoods throughout the city.

Connolly has scheduled "an endorsement event" at his Roxbury campaign office at 5:15 p.m. today. Gosh, who could that be?

The Globe looks at labor disputes as an issue in the race. WBUR looks at Irish-American class divisions through the lens of Charletown's townie/toonie divide. And yes, they throw in "lace curtain" for good measure.

Chris Elliott lookalike Bud Jackson, meanwhile, is out with a new TV ad for Marty Walsh. The Herald explains why some guy from Virginia is posing himself with a Walsh sign at Fenway Park.

Sampan reports on a forum with District 2 candidates Bill Linehan and Suzanne Lee.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


The Herald is reporting Connolly's endorsements are by black religious leaders in the community. I would imagine an endorsement by CGR would be at a more high profile location than one of his small campaign offices?
