Why Kennedy had to run
The Vanguard Democrats in MA are about 22% of the electorate and punched above their weight all season because of their intense anti Trump animus, which the media loved, but were surprised by the surge of the Democratic Big Middle. Read our December MassINC piece.
We've been tracking this since 2018 and, while it hasn't moved as of 3/16 we are keeping an eye on immigration attitudes.

Which is closer to your view about immigration policy?

Recently Brookline became the first East Coast city to ban oil and natural gas infrastructure in new construction projects to deal with climate change. Interestingly, there is significant statewide support for the idea. Take a look by Region and Party.

Covid Response Still Political
He didn't want to do it, the polls made him do it. Joe was hoping for Liz to leave as President or take her place in a D administration in 2020. He also knew that Ed was in a career countdown, even if Ed didn't, and he was willing to wait. 

However, two poll in 2018 showing Ed at 26% against Healy and Moulton, also at 26%, meant that someone, literally anyone might beat Markey, think Liss-Rioden. If a low visibility contender started to climb in the polls it could draw the attention of a more serious contender, think Pressley. If elected they become Senior Senator, if Liz was gone, and a national figure if it was a woman, especially a black woman. 

As for a rational, simply, it's the times we live in, and after all, it is the family business.
