ICYMI: 3rd degree tiff may burn Democrats

Hillary Chabot - Thursday, September 06, 2018

"An acrid stalemate between Democratic 3rd Congressional District candidates Lori L. Trahan and Daniel A. Koh could dangerously undercut the Democratic nominee’s momentum, giving GOP candidate Rick Green an advantage in the 62-day general election sprint, said political insiders.

'Greater Lowell and Essex County all have really supportive spots for a Republicans. A Republican could do very well up here,' said former state Sen. Steven Panagiotakos, who didn’t endorse in the Democratic primary.

The impending general election added another level of tension following a bleary-eyed primary night with no clear winner. The eventual nominee will face Green, a Pepperell Republican."
