Preliminary indications are that our feisty local tabloid is taking a pass on the Boston mayoral race. The first competitive City Hall election in 20 years is apparently less important than the non-existent political career of a certain Scott Brown (R-Nowhere).
Monday it was Brown traipsing around Iowa that earned him Page One of the Herald. (Q: What’s the difference between Scott Brown and the Iowa State Fair butter cow? A: The cow will participate in the 2016 Iowa presidential caucuses.)
Today the big news is that Brown continues not to run for governor. So that’s front-page material too.
But while the Herald recites Make Way for Charlie, a real campaign has broken out in the Boston mayoral race, mostly around City Councilor (and current co-favorite) John Connolly.
