Just when we thought we were going to have a reprieve from the worst campaigner evah, she’s going to delight us with a reelection bid. She must have the same advisers from her failed Senate bid urging her to run.
Attorney General Martha Coakley, on the losing end of state Sen. Scott Brown’s upset win during Tuesday’s U.S. Senate special election, will ask voters in November to allow her to keep her job.
A Coakley aide confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Coakley would seek reelection to a job that many high-ranking elected Democrats had eyed in recent months, expecting Coakley to win the Senate seat.
Coakley’s critics say she ran an underwhelming Senate campaign while her defenders say Brown benefited from a political climate that shifted in his favor.
Her opponents have a treasure trove of material on her before they get one signature to get on the ballot.
The added bonus? I get to vote against her twice in less than a year.
