Running as an ultra-liberal, Mr. Nociforo accuses Neil of being too conservative! Now that's a laugh!

His opponent Shein has made note that Nuciforo voted to repeal the Clean Elections Law while in the state Senate.

Website Message:
"Andrea F. Nuciforo Jr. is a progressive champion of the middle class. He is a fighter dedicated to bringing real reform to Washington."

Well, he issued a press release PRAISING the largest tax increase in the history of the world, ObamacareTax. You can expect he will vote for every tax increase.

Pro-choice comments.

Tsongas is a liberal 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.

See the radio broadcasts from the JEFF KATZ show. Seems she is MORE THAN HAPPY to run fundraisers at OBAMA and other ultra-left radical left Democrat supporter's households. Has not ruled out, and apparently has done or is doing several. More to be posted.

She registered as a REPUBLICAN in 2011 after spending most of her life as a DEMOCRAT.

She calls herself a "SOCIAL LIBERAL" but also believes in taxpayer funding for abortion, to help out poor people. Taxpayer money to pay for abortions, is not exactly Fiscal Conservatism either, nor small govt. So, she's a NO on most things.

Edorsed by Bill Weld (the same guy who endorsed Democrat B. Obama).

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.

Lower taxes in order to reduce unemployment and recover the economy.

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
