Over the past couple weeks Attorney General Martha Coakley has been campaigning like her job depended on it, now she’ll have to debate like it too. Write-in-turned-ballot-Republican James McKenna has announced that he and Coakley will face off on NECN this Thursday night, from 6:00 to 8:00.
Coakley has put on the ol’ campaigning shoes recently, and seems to be looking at McKenna as a viable threat to her re-election. She was in Worcester yesterday, spending time at the East Side CDC, took a walk down Shrewsbury St. and stopped in Mac’s Diner. According to the Telegram‘s article, she inadvertently blurted out Worcester’s newest slogan:
At one point, Ms. Coakley appeared surprised that a fancy pastry café, a high-end eyewear store and trendy restaurants shared (Shrewsbury) street.
“It’s like Greenwich Village,” she exclaimed, referring to the trendy Manhattan neighborhood of New York. “Who knew?”
Charlie Baker has picked up his Central Massachusetts efforts lately, making a surprise appearance at a Scott Brown/Lew Envangelidis event last week at Coral Seafood and returning to town today. He’ll be at the Boulevard Diner at 12:15.
