“Patrick Roars to 2nd Term” reads the top headline on boston.com right now.
Patrick’s margin of victory was unmistakable tonight. Considering the problems we face and the tendency of voters to take out anxiety and anger out on the incumbents, deserving or not, beating Baker by around 7 points is a roar, and a resounding endorsement to start his second term.
Considering the mixed results nationwide, I am more convinced than ever that we chose the right state in which to settle. I think our future here is very bright - I only hope we can buck the national trends of obstruction and willful ignorance and economic self-destruction, in our small corner of the world. With four more years, we can really showcase a strong Progressive Experiment and pit it against the regression of the Republicans elsewhere.
Congratulations, Governor Patrick!
