Cue the world’s tiniest violin for Elizabeth Warren:
This coming weekend Massachusetts will hold its Democratic convention. With Warren’s brewing scandals involving her claims of Cherokee ancestry and possible plagiarism, Democrat grassroots are looking much closer at Marisa DeFranco, who is also a Democrat running for the opportunity to face Brown. And should DeFranco pick up 15% of the delegates this weekend, she and Warren will fight it out through a September primary election.
September? If DeFranco wins, that’s barely enough time to launch a statewide campaign against a well-liked incumbent. And if Warren hangs on, that’s not enough time to recover from the shots DeFranco will nail her with during the primary.
Pop some corn, because this could turn out to be the most entertaining circular firing squad in years.
