Baker braved a dreary Tuesday following Monday’s storm to speak on Richardson’s behalf at the Tyngsboro Sportsmen’s Club.
Richardson is seen as one of their best chances to add a GOP seat to the overwhelmingly Democratic state House of Representatives, said Tim Buckley, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Republican Party. The district, which consists of Dracut and Tyngsboro, is one of the most conservative in the state

And in an email today, we hear that Richardson will be rallying with Scott Brown in Chelmsford on Friday:
Please join me this Friday for an exciting rally with my husband U.S. Senator Scott Brown; Cathy Richardson, a candidate for State Representative; and Maura Cieradello, candidate for the 5th District’s Governor’s Council.
This rally is an exciting event that comes as part Scott’s “People over Party” Bus Tour across Massachusetts. With less than a week before Election Day, it’s time to come out and rally the vote.
Please join us this Friday.

DRACUT, MA—State Senator Barry Finegold, with Representative Colleen Garry, will be holding a press conference on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 2 p.m. outside Dracut Town Hall, 62 Arlington St., to announce funding from the state budget that will be granted to Dracut for its new town hall construction project.

State Representative Colleen Garry (D—Dracut)
Dennis Piendak, Town Manager
From the Lowell Sun Editorial:
36th Middlesex District — Colleen Garry (D) vs. Cathy Richardson (R): In another race that has been full of name-calling and innuendo, Colleen Garry has shown herself to be sensitive to her constituents’ concerns throughout her nine terms, mirroring the conservative bent of the district. Richardson, aside from questioning her opponent’s character, hasn’t given voters any justifiable reasons or compelling ideas to make a change. We believe Colleen Garry is the right choice for Dracut and Tyngsboro.
From the Boston Globe today, we hear that a poll that fell quite against him now has him leading.
Two years ago, this poll had Martha Coakley 15 points ahead of Brown.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of hearing about abortion and other issues from the 70s. We have an economy where people need work and the government should be looking to ease anything in the way of creating jobs.
A new Boston Globe poll shows the race between Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in a dead heat, with ample opportunity for both candidates to win the nation’s most expensive Senate race eight days from now.
The survey indicates Brown holds a razor-thin 45 percent to 43 percent lead over Warren among likely voters, well within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Brown’s lead evaporates, with 47 percent for each candidate, when voters who are undecided are asked which candidate they are leaning toward.
The poll is a reversal from a September Globe survey that showed Warren ahead 43 percent to 38 percent, as well as several other recent polls that have found Warren with a slight lead. The shift underscores the belief long held by both sides that the race, active for more than a year, would be competitive until the end.
