We have endorsed Congressman Mike Capuano because he represents about the very best of what it means to be a liberal congressman from Massachusetts.
Ayanna Pressley is not better than Mike Capuano.
At the very worst, she is the same. So why switch?
The Boston Globe said voters should vote for Pressley because she really showed her stuff making sure minority owners received liquor licenses in Boston while a Boston city councilor.
What kind of accomplishment is that!
From where I sit, liquor is poison. Liquor kills all kinds of people, ruins any number of families, kills many on the roads and on and on.
Who gets a liquor license in Boston doesn’t translate into going onto the floor of the Congress after you’ve been there 20 years bringing home the bacon as Capuano has.
Nothing in Congress matters more than seniority and after 20 years Capuano has seniority. He doesn’t just bring home the bacon – millions and millions to his district every year for nearly every conceivable on merit reason– but he is always involved in advancing civil rights, gender consciousness, and he even has a strong backbone about military matters, about right and wrong.
