Political newcomer Carl Sciortino Jr., who is running in the Democratic primary for Ed Markey’s vacated Massachusetts 5th District Congressional seat, has made quite a splash with his first TV spot.
From Politico’s Morning Score:
MASSACHUSETTS SPECIAL: COMING OUT: This week also brings a spate of new ads in the race to replace now-Sen. Ed Markey (D) in Massachusetts’s 5th District. Democrat Carl Sciortino, Jr., who is openly gay, “comes out” to his “Tea Party father” as a “proud Massachusetts liberal” in this one-minute spot, running for an undisclosed amount.
(The web version asks for donations to “[keep] this ad on the air.” Which maybe ran once?)
Could be a nice little dustup in the 5th, yeah?
