Meet @AlanKhazei who is running for a seat in the U.S. Congress #MA04.

He is endorsed by #Iran’s first official DC-based lobbying organization @paaia.

America, and the State of Massachusetts, please take this warning seriously.

“What matters is how do we get Trump out of the White House.”

Use young energy to “finally break the log-jam in Congress, break the back of Mitch McConnell.”

“That’s what I am talking about.”
Khazei’s close relations with high-profile figures have helped him raise significant cash.

“Khazei, however, has been one of the most successful at raising cash so far, and ended March with more than $780,000 cash on hand...”…

NEW: @JakeAuch, a US Marine veteran and current Newton City Councilor, has narrowly won the crowded Democratic primary to replace @joekennedy in #MA04, @DecisionDeskHQ projects, narrowly defeating former Brookline select board member @jessemermell… Image
Auchincloss is all-but-assured to go on to win the general election in this safely Democratic district, which voted for Hillary Clinton by over 24 points in 2016, against GOP nominee Julie Hall. #MA04 includes some suburbs around Boston & stretches down to the South Coast region
Auchincloss performed particularly well in the South Coast region. He was backed by VoteVets, the With Honor Fund, a slew of local elected officials and groups including the mayors of New Bedford and Fall River, and secured the endorsement of the Boston Globe editorial board

Can see a wide path for Jake Auchincloss in #MA04, but this isn't a clear story of anybody spoiling anybody: Grossman was going for the same voters as him (from same base), Leckey and Linos going for the same voters as Mermell.
That said it reminds me a bit of those CA races last cycle where a couple candidates would have no strategy for victory but keep running anyway.
This Intercept piece touting Ihssane Leckey - who's heading for fifth place in #MA04 - used an internal Leckey poll to suggest that Mermell was stalled out. A better metric might have been $. Leckey mostly had to self-fund, as she raised a bit over $250k from donors.

Shaping up to be the most competitive high-profile race of the night: Jesse Mermell & Jake Auchincloss are trading the lead in the open #MA04 primary. Everyone else left quite a bit behind. Progressives splitting vote here; Auchincloss would be win for moderate wing.
Brookline (right next to Boston) reported all of its precincts, and Jesse Mermell (who's from there) DOMINATED: This powers her to a suddenly-big 32% to 21% lead over Auchincloss. But 75% of the district (none of which will be as good for Mermell as Brookline) is left.
Still a lot of the vote is out in #MA04, and Auchincloss has cut his deficit over Mermell significantly: Mermell now leads 25% to 22%, and favorable territory for Auchincloss remains.

First town counted in #MA01, Windsor, suggets higher turnout than 2018, including some new Neal votes.

Neal: 100
Amatul-Wadud: 55

Neal: 128
Morse: 94
First flip is Worthington, though everything is good *enough* for Neal to keep him ahead overall. (The first Holyoke precinct was great for Neal.)

Neal: 214
Amatul-Wadud: 200

Morse: 261
Neal: 177
We're expecting at least 1.1 million Dem primary votes statewide, and more than 100k in #MA01, so I'm not over-analyzing based on the precincts in, just looking at towns that are finished.

🗳🇺🇸1. ¡Hoy hay primarias en Massachusetts! Estaré siguiendo los resultados en este hilo de Twitter y a partir de las 7:30pm EST en, por si queréis ir cogiendo sitio.

Puede ser una GRAN noche para la izquierda en Nueva Inglaterra. Vamos a ver por qué. 👇🏼
🗳🇺🇸2. Lo más importante del día son las primarias senatoriales (#MASen). El progresista Ed Markey, en el Senado desde 2013, defiende escaño con la ayuda de su compañera Elizabeth Warren y de Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, con quien lanzó el #GreenNewDeal.
🗳🇺🇸3. Su rival es Joe Kennedy III, nieto de Bobby Kennedy, que quería aprovechar un año de elecciones tonto para arrebatarle el puesto a Markey sin ninguna razón demasiado específica.

Es más establishment que Markey en un estado cada vez más progresista.

I’m going to count down the six most important elections — or “election questions” — in Massachusetts today, in some rough order that combines substantive stakes & suspense, because why not.
6. The state’s most conservative congressmember, Lynch, faces a progressive challenger. This has not drawn enough attn for an upset to be likely, but keep an eye on #MA08 still—esp. for future cycles. (I previewed via voting rights:…)
5. #MA04: open seat could go to a progressive — but also veer right if most conservative benefits from a 7-way race to snatch primary.

4. We increasingly see talk of sheriffs matter a ton. Well, here’s a sheriff’s race that takes those powers seriously.…

It's primary election day in Massachusetts where Democratic Senator Ed Markey is being challenged by Rep. Joe Kennedy III.
16th term #MA01 Rep. Richard Neal, Ways & Means Chair & endorsed by Speaker Pelosi, faces Democratic primary challenger Alex Morse, supported by Ocasio-Cortez and progressive Justice Democrats who helped 3 Democratic primary opponents defeat Reps Clay, Engel & Lipinski this year.
It's open #MA04 House race today with Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III running for US Senate instead of a 5th House term.

This is a list of progressive/leftist congressional candidates endorsed by at least one of these groups:
