Eldridge Will Run

To nobody's surprise, state rep Jamie Eldridge is running for the state senate seat of Pam Resor, who has announced that she is not running for re-election this year. Eldridge, a liberal who ran a somewhat quixotic campaign for US Congress last year, should be a strong force in this race. His campaign put out a release this morning confirming that Eldridge will run.

In a bit of an upside-down reality, Eldridge may need to get more votes to win state senate (at least in the general) than for congress, despite the much smaller district in play. The senate race will occur along with a presumably huge-turnout Presidential election, while the congressional was an oddly-timed special election.

Resor is one of three state senators who are reportedly leaving this year, along with Robert Antonioni and Ed Augustus a little further west. Should be plenty of action!
