Charlie Baker – ‘Governor of Dark Money’

What a tremendous week it was for MassDems as we saw our three recently elected Democratic candidates for State Representative sworn into office on Wednesday. We were proud to join them in the wake of our Party sweeping these important special elections.

As we have said many times before, we must never take our eye off our grassroots organizing. Both Stephan Hay and Tom Walsh were subjected to outside spending by Republican leadership and their front groups like Mass Fiscal Alliance, but were able to overcome that through strong voter outreach.

Below, please enjoy the rest of our latest edition of MassDems weekly Talking Points email – highlighting Democratic achievements and holding Republican Gov. Baker accountable.
