Excellent news in MA senate race: Lynch drops out
Lynch unexpectedly dropped out on Tuesday. He was by far the most conservative candidate.
That leaves AG Martha Coakley and Rep Michael Capuano as the main contenders, with Coakley being the one to beat. Capuano has a very progressive record in congress. He's the 18th most progressive members in the current house (he previously scored 49th). It's less clear where Coakley stands, though there's nothing obviously bad.
