McGovern throws in his hat w/ Capuano

October 13, 2009

3965358267_5d99d55500Looks like Mike Capuano picked up a big endorsement for his scrappy underdog campaign for US Senate – Rep. Jim McGovern, who represents a sizable slice of Massachusetts from Worcester down to Wrentham and Fall River.  According to a campaign press release, besides McGovern,

…He was also endorsed by Worcester County Sheriff Guy Glodis, State Senator Richard Moore, State Rep. Jennifer M. Callahan, State Rep. Jim O’Day, State Rep. Geraldo Alicea and State Rep. Robert Spellane.

“As our next U.S. Senator, Mike Capuano will continue to effectively serve all Massachusetts residents and fight for the progressive ideals we share,” stated Congressman McGovern. “I have been proud to call Congressman Capuano a friend and colleague. Mike has worked closely with me and other members of the Massachusetts delegation on so many important issues, including a public option in health care reform and opposing the Iraq War.”

This is a major endorsement, since McGovern and Glodis are real heavy hitters in the mid-section of the state, where Capuano probably doesn’t have a lot of name recognition.  If these folks campaign –hard– with him, Capuano has a real shot of wresting mid-Massachusetts into his column.
