As Election Day draws near, political campaigns begin to switch over from traditional campaigning to get out the vote (GOTV) efforts. In Massachusetts, Democratic candidates in particular have a full stable of surrogates and big names to rally the troops and keep up momentum heading into E-Day. Depending on the style and nature of the campaign, this can and does include big names boosting state legislative candidates as well.
Already Eric Lesser, the former White House aide turned Democratic state senate nominee, had Governor Deval Patrick and former First Lady Kitty Dukakis to help out. Democratic Attorney General nominee Maura Healey is scheduled to kickoff a GOTV event for Lesser on Saturday, but quite possibly the commonwealth’s highest profile and by some estimates most popular politician will be on hand the next day. Sources close the campaign say Senator Elizabeth Warren will greet Lesser supporters Sunday morning at the campaign’s East Longmeadow office.
