Coakley’s Lackluster Primary Night


Looks like 57% of Democrat primary voters agree with Rep. Capuano that Martha Coakley isn’t the best candidate.

Last night, Martha Coakley pulled in less than 50% of the Democrat vote in what the Boston Globe described as an “unnervingly close” victory in the Massachusetts gubernatorial primary.

Coakley eked out the nomination by only 6 percentage points, barely two weeks after a Boston Globe poll predicted Coakley would win by double that.

2010, anyone?? The parallels to Coakley’s crumbling Senate campaign four years ago have to be keeping her up at night.

As if those flashbacks weren’t bad enough, it also appears that a Coakley attack ad played at her election party. Not quite the atmosphere that riles up the base for the general election.
