Pro-family activism that makes a difference!

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:

Terry's Last Run: The only state senator in danger this November is the one who holds the place together

Therese Murray took over as Senate president in March 2007, which means - under the eight-year limit adopted after William Bulger's two-decade reign - that she would have to step down just two months into the 2015-2016 session. Nobody thinks she'll stay a lowly senator after surrendering the gavel, and it seems implausible that she could run in November 2014 for, in effect, a two-month term.

That means this is probably the last campaign for Murray, after a remarkable 20-year climb to the top of the Senate, where she is among a handful of the most powerful people in Massachusetts.

And there's a good chance she will lose.

Murray is locked in a rematch with Sandwich Selectman Tom Keyes, who took 48 percent of the vote in their 2010 nail-biter, losing by a mere 3600 votes out of 74,000.

It's not supposed to work this way. Typically, Senate presidents and House Speakers come from solidly partisan, safe districts. That leaves them free to serve as lightning rods, protecting other Senate members and assisting their political needs, without worrying about their own reputations back in the home district.

This year, however, the situation is completely inverted. Murray, who represents the increasingly conservative Upper Cape and Plymouth area, is the lone incumbent in trouble, while the other 36 senators seeking re-election - 32 Democrats and four Republicans - all appear to be coasting . . .
