Next up, it’s the State Region Every candidate in this bracket currently serves as either a Constitutional Officer, a member of the State Legislature, or the Mayor of a city in Massachusetts.
Expert Analysis: There’s not a lot of middle ground here. At the top of the bracket you have established, state-wide elected officials, and on the bottom half you have a lot of up and comers with ambition for higher office. Seems like there is a lot of George Mason upset potential here.
Matchups to watch:
Bump vs. Galvin – Many people feel that both of these candidates deserved higher seeds. Will they take it out on each other?
Grossman vs. Downing – Can Grossman’s fundraising prowess overwhelm the Benator’s social media dominance?
Driscoll vs. Lang – Two coastal Mayors from two different coasts. Will Salem or New Bedford emerge?
