With less than a week to go before the primary, the four Republicans running for Congress in the 5th District will be busy asking residents for their votes in what could be a tricky sell for some candidates whose own voting histories could best be described as inconsistent.

In the final analysis, voters participating in the September 14 Primary need to ask themselves one simple question: "Which Republican has the best shot at defeating Niki Tsongas?"

As a life-long resident of Massachusetts, as a Republican voter of the Fifth District who is tired of backing losing candidates, as one who senses a real opportunity for the Republican Party this November, and as one who has been observing developments in this race from the outset, I believe that question is not a close one.

In my view, the Republican with the best chance of prevailing in the general election in November is clearly Sam Meas.

This does not mean that the other candidates, whatever their personal misadventures (after all, we all make mistakes), are not good people (I happen to like all of them). But it does mean that they are inferior candidates.

For the uninitiated, or the willfully blind, these are the facts of political life for Republicans (especially conservative ones) seeking high elected office in Massachusetts: only those who are clean, trustworthy, and without personal baggage have a shot at success.

Why? Because the amount of withering direct fire that an entrenched democrat - aided and abetted by her acolytes in the liberal media and fearful of losing her position of power - will direct at even an untarnished Republican opponent is formidable. You cannot imagine what happens to Republicans who are already tarnished.

Ok I will ask this question ONCE AGAIN.

Just because you say he is the most electable DOESN"T MAKE IT TRUE!!!

Outside of being a Cambodian, what has Sam done to be elected to the third highest office in the country.

Do you really think the average voter will go into the poll and vote for a candidate with absolutely zero experience and zero resume.

Again I ask what makes you believe the voters will support a candidate with zero record.

Scott Brown got elected because he had a great resume and record, Sam has none.

The Republican Party will embrace him. The voters won't (wisely).
