(NECN) - It's time for the Braude Beat, and Thursday was a busy day for the Mass. political world.
U.S. Congressman Stephen Lynch started his bid for U.S. Senate Thursday.
"Lynch has a broader constituency in the labor movement around the state. He's a former iron worker himself, and I think it's a huge thing for him if they turn out, and I think they will for one of their own," Broadside host Jim Braude said. "Markey though has a broader liberal base, some around the state, not huge, but some around the state, so they start - Markey has three million bucks and Lynch only has $800,000, but it's going to be this, I don't know if you saw the sign at the rally for Lynch today - Common Man, Uncommon Leader - it's going to be the working class hero guy big time versus the Washington insider."
Braude also talks about John Kerry's most memorable moments while in office - and points to the infamous "Don't Taze Me, Bro" moment.
