Hey Massachusetts Democrats, Go Vote [OPINION]
There is no reason for any Democrats or unenrolled voters who lean Democrat not to go vote in the Massachusetts primary election on March 3.
President Donald J. Trump drives most Democrats and some non-Democrats insane. If you don't like President Trump, you can communicate your displeasure by going to the polls and voting for the person you want to see him battle in debates and ultimately in the general election.
I support President Trump, but I must confess to being a little jealous as all of the interesting action is in the Democratic Party primaries this year. I also understand why some Bay State voters are conflicted in who to support for the Democratic Party presidential nomination
Massachusetts Democrats are going to have to choose between supporting their own Senator and one of the other candidates. Obviously, there is a local bias in favor of Sen. Elizabeth Warren. If she loses her home state, Liz Warren will be humiliated and out as a national candidate for president. People who support and appreciate Sen. Warren have an obligation to go vote on March 3.
If Senator Warren loses, she will make history. Senator Edward Kennedy, Gov. Michael Dukakis, Sen. Paul Tsongas, and Sen. John Kerry all won in the Massachusetts primary when they ran for president as elected Democrats.
But there are lots of people who voted for Sen. Warren, love her work in the Senate, and while they wish they could vote for her, they have decided to go with another candidate to be the next president.
Four years ago, the cities of Boston, Taunton, and New Bedford were ground zero in the primary fight between Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Former President Bill Clinton visited all three cities on election day to get out the vote for his wife.
Your vote as a Democrat is just as important this year, so act accordingly.
