NEW: Mass. Dems.Travel to Springfield to Endorse Senate Candidate

Friday, June 01, 2012

 

The Massachusetts Democratic Party will be endorsing one candidate for U.S. Senate tomorrow. 5,000 delegates will vote to award the Party’s endorsement, and Party Chair John Walsh will be holding a conference call to preview the group’s endorsing convention.

“We will travel to Springfield tomorrow for one of the biggest demonstrations of grassroots democracy that the state knows, branching from one side of Commonwealth to the other,” said Kevin Franck of Mass. Dems. “We will be keeping the Commonwealth moving forward encouraging removing Scott Brown and reelecting President Obama for the middle class.”

In February, Massachusetts Democrats held 557 caucuses to elect delegates to the 2012 Endorsing Convention. An additional slate of delegates was elected by the Democratic State Committee to ensure diversity. On June 2nd, those delegates will hear from each Senate candidate and then cast their votes.

The Senate candidate who receives a majority of the delegate’s votes will become the officially endorsed candidate of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. Any candidate who receives at least 15% will remain on the Primary Election ballot, and the winner will address the convention after a final tally of the votes.

Franck said that the group hopes to showcase their dedication to the middle class though their grassroots efforts and volunteers.

“The Massachusetts Democratic party is showing our presence as a strong grassroots organization. Voters show time and time again that they want our candidates and our choices,” he said. “We plan to build a massive campaign to encourage people to talk to neighbors, families, and friends about Brown standing with Wall Street.”

Following the speech by the endorsed candidate, Massachusetts Democrats will assemble to launch a massive city-wide canvass of Springfield. Delegates, Party leaders and other volunteers will go door-to-door to talk to voters.

“The mission of our volunteers is a simple one – to spread the truth about brown’s record in Washington,” Franck said.
