NO Across the Board: By virtue of his endorsement from Mass Alliance
Notes: Although he has declared himself an unenrolled independent candidate, he was also noted as having canvassed seeking to secure a Democratic nomination, which he achieved by registering as a Democrat and securing over 160 write-in votes on the Democrat primary ballot.

Nominated to the Wall of Shame because he tried to portray himself as an Independent while refusing to acknowledge that he was a former Democrat Party operative

EDITOR'S NOTE: Unexpected and shameful to not stand to demand a roll call vote. She and her husband have held this seat since1977. Arrogance perhaps?

 

DID WE GET A RATING WRONG?
Well, with incumbents, VOTES speak loud, but with "challengers",
picking through the mud can get murky at times.
