  •  You can add Jim McGovern to that list, (7+ / 0-)

    although I don't know if he wants to go for it.  He's from Worcester County where Brown was strong.  You're right, though, about turnout in the industrial cities going down in a special election.

    Check out these numbers for Warren:

    Chelsea 76%
    Lynn  65%
    New Bedford 70%
    Fall River 68%
    Brockton 68%
    Springfield 74%
    Holyoke 70%
    A low turnout in these cities, as happened in the 2010 special, means not good news for ANY Democrat.  And I'm not even including Boston (74%) because Boston has some yuppie and college student sections.
