MassGOP Releases New Video: “Sound Familiar?”

BOSTON – Today the MassGOP released a new web video entitled “Sound Familiar?” which highlights Attorney General Martha Coakley’s inability to overcome her disastrous 2010 campaign as she fades in recent polls.

“As the election nears, more and more voters are beginning to remember why they rejected her and her disastrous campaign for higher taxes and more spending,” said Kisten Hughes, MassGOP chairman. “Coakley can try and shake more hands but she can’t shake the real Martha Coakley from voters’ minds.”

Martha Coakey’s lead over her democratic rivals “dwindled” amid a growing negative Democratic primary fight. “Attorney General Martha Coakley’s seemingly insurmountable lead has dwindled to a dozen points in the Democratic race for governor, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Herald poll of very likely primary voters.” (Joe Battenfeld, “Suffolk-Herald poll: Coakley, Grossman gov battle tightens,” The Boston Herald, 8/25/14)

Charlie Baker erased Coakley’s lead in a hypothetical head-to-head match up. “Republican Charlie Baker has edged ahead of Democrat Martha Coakley in the race for governor, taking the lead by the slimmest of margins for the first time in the Globe’s weekly poll.” (Stephanie Ebbert, “Charlie Baker catches Martha Coakley, new poll shows,” The Boston Globe, 8/28/14)

Martha Coakley, “the Bill Buckner of Massachusetts politics,” is receiving national attention, again, for blowing a big lead in the polls. “She is the Bill Buckner of state politics – the candidate who blew one of the surest things in Massachusetts history.” (Brett Arends, “Massachusetts Democrats Prepare To Help Republicans Retake Governor’s Office,” Forbes, 8/27/14)
