A race to watch: Pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Mass. Senate President likely to lose to conservative challenger Tom Keyes, say polls and political pundits.
POSTED: October 31, 2012
One of the most powerful pro-homosexual Massachusetts politicians is on the verge of being beaten by a conservative!
The Senate President, Therese Murray, is one of the most destructive politicians in Massachusetts regarding the homosexual agenda. To say she is a water-carrier for the "gay" lobby is an understatement. Her office works closely with them and makes sure that their difficult legislation gets through the Senate, usually through a (basically phony) voice vote, where no "yeas" or "nays" are actually heard. (Murray did this with the infamous passage of the "1913 Law repeal" in 2009, and the "transgender rights" bill last year.) And she does a tremendous amount for them behind the scenes. On top of that, she is arrogant and condescending to those who disagree with her on these issues.
But Murray's Senate district, basically Plymouth and surrounding towns on the Cape, has always been relatively conservative (Scott Brown won it by 60-40 in 2010.) And with the recent redistricting, it actually became a tad more conservative.
In the 2010 election, Republican challenger Tom Keyes, a Sandwich selectman, social conservative, and Tea Party supporter, got 48% against Murray, barely losing, despite being outspent 10 to 1. (We think it was the unions' last minute "get-out-the-vote" effort that saved her.)
This could be the year
This year, Keyes is back, with an even better campaign, a better organization, and less of a funding disadvantage. And this time he could win, which would represent a HUGE victory for the conservative movement.
How bad is it looking for Murray? Here's what the ultra-liberal Boston Phoenix newspaper said earlier this month:
