The Hill had a great piece over the weekend, analyzing the challenges and yes, some advantages, Martha Coakley is facing as the lone female candidate in the race.
The challenges are real: cold winter election dates, a federal campaign account starting at $0, and a discouraging political history in Massachusetts of not electing qualified, female candidates.
However, as MA Congresswomen Niki Tsongas reminds us:
“…but a woman can’t win if a woman doesn’t run.”
Martha has come out strong in her first week and a half. Let’s keep the momentum going and help her beat the odds, shattering that MA Senate glass ceiling once and for all!
