Primaries tomorrow - who are you voting for?

I'm in the 3rd District where Niki Tsongas is retiring and I still have not decided who I'm voting for.

I think there are 7-10 candidates running and most of them I'd be happy with if they won. Leaning towards Gifford, L'Italien and Trahan.

Really hoping for a Mike Capuano win in the 7th although I do like Ayanna Presley. I don't think there is any reason to fire Mike as I lean towards experience rather than change for change's sake.

1. Governor & Lt. Governor:

Voting Jay Gonzalez and Quentin Palfrey. My State Senator and State Rep. are unopposed, as is my US representative.(all good Democrats). I will, of course support Senator Warren down the line.

One thing I will put out here: Please vote YES on question 1!

2. Why not Bob Massie?

He seems to have solid progressive credentials. Is it lack of government experience, or some other issue?

Edited to add: Gonzales does have the endorsement of the party, so there's that.

It seems to me both men would be good candidates.

3. Debates

After listening to both of them during a debate, I felt Gonzales was more to my liking.

I agree that Bob Massie is certainly well worth voting for in the final if he should overtake Jay in the primary!
