I think we should free Dave Nangle to follow his muse. It’s undemocratic, really, to hold him to the false flag of party affiliation. He is trying too hard to straddle the line. It’s just NOT fair!
While in Lowell, Huff was accompanied by state Rep. David Nangle, also a Democrat. Nangle has not endorsed a candidate in the Senate race, but said he agreed to show Huff around the city as a personal favor to Brown, who he served with in the House during the late 1990s.
It wasn’t but last Christmas season, when:
Now Gerry, you know Democrats, especially Lowell Democrats are very open minded about such things as endorsing and supporting.
I’ll bet you $10,000 that no one says a cross word.
Now, the Scott Brown campaign has been making it a practice to use Democrats to make the pitch for him, in TV ads. The historians remember Raymond Flynn. Regardless, this could be Rep. Nangle’s chance to shine! To be on TV with Scott Brown! Wouldn’t that just be the apex of his political career?
I think a great “shot,” one that will ring in the short term memories of many Lowell voters, would be to sit Dave and Scott, together, on a couch. Who knows who might sit with them? Besides, who in NH would know Nangle, if he were to endorse Mitt Romney or Frank Guinta, up there?
