Tsongas is an extremist. Elected in 2007 because her husband held the office and died. Ran on his name, similar in fashion to the prior (and perhaps future) Kennedy reign.

2012_JANUARY: Website features Niki with liberal Elizabeth Warren. Niki endorses Warren for Senate.

From "OnTheIssues.org: Tsongas has benefited from third-party groups advertising on her behalf. EMILY’s List, which supports female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, spent $125,000 on radio ads in the region linking Ogonowski with Bush.

(3) Endorsed by Warren. Need we add more?
(4) As a state Senator, she received a 13% rating from CLT in 2012. That means, she voted against the taxpayer at least 87% of the time.
(6) Money for abortions, but not diapers. This career politician is a recipient of NARAL endorsement in 2012, etc. Pro-abortion. She received the Emily's List endorsement in the special 2013 election. Emily's List donates to pro-choice DEMOCRAT women. They also tout the stupid "war on women' logo on their website. Moonbats we call them.

Salem Businesman
Newcomer to politics
Well spoken.
(1) Would love OBAMA to campaign with him. Would have voted for ObamaCare, but believes it needs to be fixed. It is flawed, and needs work. Certainly does not want to repeal it. (4) Raise minimum wage. Look at higher than the $10.10 federal proposal.
(5) I think gay rights is a fundamental right. (OTR. 3/9/2014) From website: "No one should be discriminated against simply because of who they love. Marriage equality is the civil rights fight of our generation, and I’m proud to come from the first state to make it the law of the land."

NO Rating Second Amendment: From his own website, “But we owe it to the victims and their families to do everything in our power to ensure such senseless acts of violence do not happen again. That begins with tough gun control.”

NO for Pro-Life: Moulton also backs abortion and gay rights,


Marisa Defranco
Democrat
Middleton
NO NO NO NO NO NO

From candidate's website: "She lives in Middleton, and has her own immigration law practice in Middleton, a practice she has run for 17 years"

NO for Limited Government: Marisa supports a public option (a government-run health insurance agency)
Concern Noted for Enforce Immigration Laws: Marisa supports creating legalization for undocumented immigrants.  Do we trust Democrats in Congress with the superficial sounding “path to citizenship & enforcement program)?  It didn’t work in 1986.
NO for Pro-Family: Marisa supports LGBT Rights
NO for Pro-Life:

Talk 1200 Talk Show Host Jeff Katz calls Mr. Tierney "Pockets Tierney" for being "married to the mob."

Tierney: A long-term incumbent staunch on raising taxes and limiting individual choice.

John Tierney : "F-Grade: True enemy of gun owners’ rights. A consistent anti-gun candidate who always opposes gun owners’ rights and/or actively leads anti-gun legislative efforts, or sponsors
anti-gun legislation."

Gets kinda sick that this guy's family/wife can launder $8million, plead guilty, and Tierney acts like Reinhold in Casablanca "shocked that there's gambling going on in this establishment" while being handed his winnings..... sad, all too sad.

He's had a 100% rating from IMMIGRATION LAWYERS and a 0% rating from BORDER PATROL.  True friend of NO BORDERS AND ILLEGAL ALIENS.

How Lynch tries to portray his 98% of the time voting with the Democratic leadership as 'independent' is just sickening. Another liar. - Editor

DID WE GET A RATING WRONG?
Well, with incumbents, VOTES speak loud, but with "challengers",
picking through the mud can get murky at times.
Have your candidate fill out the questionnaire! Or contact us! E-
MAIL US!

Your candidate may be pro-life or pro-abortion. That is his/her option. This site is designed to reflect votes and positions so that YOU know what your candidate's CORE position is on various issues.  In the future, our database of each candidate's rating will contain links detailing the candidate's database of votes which earned each particular rating (except congressional, as their ratings are easily tracked at projectvotesmart).

Definitions used on this website:

         Pro- 2nd Amendment = supports individual's gun rights
Enforce Immigration Laws = oppose drivers license, free tuition and benefits for illegals
                             Pro-Family = pro-child: supports marriage between one man and one woman
                                                     as he/she would not deny a child the fundamental right
                                                     to have a mother, or a father; supports parent rights over state rights
                                                     especially with education in our schools
                                   Pro-Life = supports full term protection and birth of babies,
                                                      against support of tax dollars for abortion
