* Asterisk before candidate's name indicates incumbent.

Candidate ratings (by color):

• Definitely vote for
• Pretty good
• Fairly bad
• Terrible
• Not enough information

NOTE: Candidates with "Definitely Vote For" rating are, to the best of our knowledge, pro-life and pro-traditional marriage, as well as good on general pro-family issues. And consider voting for "Fairly Bad" candidates if the others are "Terrible".

Special thanks to Lonnie Brennan and the research done on his website when we needed more info on a candidate.

Endorsements and votes, etc:

We've included key endorsements, votes, and other information.




= Endorsed by Democratic Socialists of America (more)
= Endorsed by Mass. Citizens for Life
= Endorsed by Planned Parenthood
= Endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts
= Endorsed by MassEquality homosexual lobby group
= Endorsed by Mass. Gay & Lesbian Political Causus
= Voted for sales tax increase
= Co-sponsor of Transgender Bill
= Voted for Casino Gambling Bill H5000
= Received at least $500 from Tim Gill (see below) since 2004
= Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Victory Fund


MCFL occasionally endorses anti-family candidates (such as Sen. Richard Ross) who are pro-gay marriage and/or march in the Gay Pride Parade, or who aren't 100% pro-life. But although their endorsements aren't completely dependable, they're still useful. 

MassEquality endorsements do not include several strongly pro-gay legislators, presumably because they are in "safe" seats. 

Gambling - A disturbing number of politicians have bought into the fantasy that establishing gambling casinos is the answer to bringing in jobs and revenue. That approach has had limited success in other states, and introduces many other problems. Instead, they should make Massachusetts a business-friendly (rather than business-unfriendly) state.

Tim Gill is is a multi-millionaire hardcore homosexual activist in Colorado who funds pro-homosexual candidates in legislative races in order to push pro-gay and sexual-radical causes across America. These are direct donations from Gill; according to reports he also funnels money to candidates through others.  If you don't know about Tim Gill, you need to find out.  Read more here.

Political Parties:

Interestingly, there are a total of 10 different political parties or affiliations. They are assigned to candidates by the Secretary of State's office.



= Democrat
= Republican
= Independent
= Unenrolled
= Green-Rainbow
= Citizen Legislator
= Bring Home Troops
= Non-Party
= Liberty
= Tax Revolt Independent

Straightforward approach. This yard sign was in hundreds of yards in Framingham before the Sept. 14 primary. In that election incumbent State Rep Pam Richardson (D-Framingham) was defeated --despite the fact that she had been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and MassEquality, and the rest of the liberal machinery! This is the kind of sentiment we're looking to see across the state on Nov. 2.
