Eldridge is such a ONE-issue phony. His only part in getting Evergreen Solar to come to Devens was a photo-op, but he told the voters it was all HIS work. What does he say now that they're moving 800 jobs to CHINA - on OUR DIME?

Meanwhile he has worked tirelessly for the Transgender Bathroom Bill – his only constituency.

People should ask him WHERE HE WAS after the December ice storm of 2008. Nowhere to be seen when Lunenburg was out of power for 14 days.

What a joke this group is.

They endorse a candidate that never served in the military. One who got elected to Congress because her huband was a US Senator, who also never serve in the military.

There are two veterans that actually served and one of them has a son now serving. Did they even talk with the veterans, I doubt it!

This group is a joke.

With a little luck, Sullivan can do for Sam what he did for Lawrence. LMAO

Hey Lil' Nick from Lowell, got a question for you: How many more business have gone belly up since Tsongas was elected? How many more empty store fronts do you see on you way to work?

Or am I assuming too much? Are you sitting at home collecting an unemployment check?

Your snarky comments cannot cover up the facts. High taxes and socialist programs drive jobs off shore.

Everywhere I look in the 5th District I see empty businesses, empty store fronts, and signs of the 10+% unemployment which Niki Tsongas and her tax & spend democrats have brought to our area. I'm a veteran, and I have grown totally disgusted with Tsongas. She needs to be retired so she can stay in Charlestown.

You always seem to have a dig ready for Republicans. WHAT have the Democrats done to bring industry back to Massachusetts?

I wish I knew now who the republican nominee (or who has the best shot) will be to run against Nikki so I can start donating NOW!

Nikki: November is coming. You poo-poo'd us at the town hall, now we will shoo, shoo you at the ballot box.

Ciao, and enjoy your early retirement.

Dale E. Brown, Independent for Congress (MA05) is the only candidate that can beat Niki…in the Primary Election. As an unenrolled candidate his name can be written in on the Democrat Primary ballot, in which case Niki would not even appear on the November ballot, if enough unenrolled voters pull the Democrat ballot and write his name in. Unenrolled voters (50% of voters in 5th district) can request either ballot in the Primary Election.

Dale is a Navy veteran with 14 years (1969-1982) in the Naval Security Group (Naval Intelligence). He completed special assignments for the Officer in Charge of the National Security Agency (NSA) Pacific and another for the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO). He has degrees in Mathematics (BS) and Computer Science (MS) and spent his civilian career as a Radar and Digital Communications Engineer and Software Engineer for Sperry Gyroscope, Unisys, Loral, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. His many projects included support for the US Atlantic Fleet, Royal Saudi Naval Forces, US Navy escort operations for Kuwaiti oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, Royal Australian Navy, US Weather Service, US Army (Patriot Missile Systems), and new development of the Zumwalt class destroyer.

Dale invites all registered voters to write in his name on either ballot in the Primary Election on September 14 and encourages all voters to vote for him on November 2.

It is fantastic to see the endorsements lining up behind Debbie Silberstein, the only truly qualified strong new voice in her Senate primary race. Her opponents are both "old school" pols, including one who's done next to nothing in 15 years in the House.
Debbie has the intelligence and the community activist background we need. She has passion and truly cares about working families. The other guys make old-time empty suit speeches.
