DL Tomorrow night

Happy April everyone, hope you all enjoyed the holiday! Are we ready to get together and discuss all the news that's fit to dissect?? I just heard that Scott Walker might be coming to MA this month for a fund raiser. I would love to be a spot on the wall for that one.

Rand Paul threw his hat into the ring to run for President. It will be interesting how he compares himself to Ted Cruz. I would imagine each accusing the other of being too progressive or liberal. This should make for some exciting debates.

See you all tomorrow night at the Turtle Tavern on Main St. in Milford.

DL this Wednesday

Hope to see you at DL this Wednesday. Unless you live under a rock, you must have heard that Ted Cruz, the golden child of the Tea Party extremist, has declared his candidacy for President. Well just knock me over with a feather! Pundits have called this a good play. The feeling is that the Republican field will become crowded and to make his announcement now gives him a heads up. So who will be next? Scott Walker, Random Paul, Donald Trump?

What about the Democratic contenders? It seems that Hillary's announcement is just a matter of time. What about Elizabeth Warren throwing her hat into the race? Should she run or would she be able to be more productive to her causes by remaining in the Senate?

On another note, climate change will most likely be a campaign issue. It will be interesting to see how this is handled by each side and if there will be any headway made on taking more direct action to address this growing problem.

The Drinking Liberally host in Cambridge, Matt Flipowitz, will have a comedy show in Jamaica Plain this Saturday night. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased in advance.

The Democratic State Convention will be on September 19th this year. The window for the town caucuses is May 2-June 28.

Come down to the Turtle Tavern, 72 Main St. Milford this Wednesday from 6:30.
