Jim is certainly correct when he says that Massachusetts Democrats can beat competitive Republican candidates when they are not taken by surprise.
Yet I cannot help but think that Mass Dems aren’t going to take any chances in 2012.
I have said it before and I will say it again. Scott Brown will most likely face off against Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick in two years time.
After all, Patrick isn’t running for a third term. Democrats will want a heavy hitter and Patrick carries the biggest stick.
But that said Mass Dems would be foolish to underestimate Brown’s arsenal of fastballs, curveballs and the occasional slider. As inept as Martha Coakley was, Brown has a personal touch few others can match.
Now it is true that Brown has alienated some Tea Party activists here in the Bay State. But if it’s a choice between Brown and Patrick, I don’t think they will stay home on November 6, 2012.
