Markey or Kennedy

We have a primary here in Massachusetts tomorrow and there is a juicy fight for the US Senate going on. With only one day left to make a decision, I am still very much undecided.

Kennedy currently has a seat in the US House and he is clearly a rising star. Even without the family name he is making waves in all the right ways. I would be very happy to see him in the US Senate.

Markey has been serving the state in Washington for ages. He’s always seemed to quietly be right where we the people needed him to be, doing exactly what we needed him to do. Under Trump he has always stood up to the fascists in the White House and he has been a strong force for right. Oh yeah, and he co-wrote the Green New Deal. I would be very happy to have Ed Markey in the US Senate for another six years.

Up until the last few days I was pretty strongly leaning toward Kennedy. Today, I think I’m leaning toward Markey.

We have vote by mail ballots but we did not mail them. What with the Trump administration dismantling the US Postal system in yet another obvious attempt to rig elections. Instead, I will drop our ballots off at City Hall, either tonight or tomorrow.

Now I just have to make a decision.
