Candidates for Governor

One-term Republican governor Mitt Romney is not seeking re-election and will leave office when his term ends in January 2007. Polls had been mixed prior to Romney's announcement, with one poll showing Romney slightly leading Democrat Attorney General Tom Reilly and other polls showing Reilly, who was then the Democratic frontrunner, in the lead.[1] Romney endorsed Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey to succeed him in the 2006 gubernatorial election. Republican Christy Mihos left his party to run as an Independent, and the Green-Rainbow Party nominated a slate of candidates for statewide office. While the Libertarian Party has often run candidates for governor in the past, the deadline for filing signatures passed this year without their nominating a candidate. State law requires that candidates for state-wide office be registered in their party (or unenrolled for independent candidates) by March 7. The Republican Party, often called the GOP (for Grand Old Party, although one early citation described it as the Gallant Old Party) [1], is one of the two major political parties in the United States. ...

Democratic Primary

See Election results below for details.

The Democrats were the only party with a contested primary election. On September 19, 2006, Patrick won the Democratic primary with 50% of the vote, ahead of Gabrieli (27%) and Reilly (23%).[5] September 19 is the 262nd day of the year (263rd in leap years). ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Caucuses

The Democratic State Caucuses were held in February in all cities and towns to elect delegates to the convention. The Patrick campaign organized their supporters, many of whom had never been involved in such party processes before, to win twice as many pledged delegates as the Reilly campaign. (Chris Gabrieli did not join the race until a month later, which played a major role in his difficulty in getting on the ballot).


Debates

The first two debates took place in late April, and were the first of many between then and September: WBZ-CBS4 News hosted a debate between Democratic candidates Chris Gabrieli, Deval Patrick, and Tom Reilly on April 21 and it aired at 8:30 AM on April 23.[6] A second Democratic candidate debate, moderated by Sy Becker from WWLP TV 22, was held at Agawam Middle School on April 27.[7] On April 25, Healey called for a series of four debates involving all four candidates between the September primaries and November general election, and this proposition was seconded by Patrick.[8] WBZ-TV, CBS 4, is the CBS television owned-and-operated station serving the Boston, Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire television markets. ...

The final two televised debates played a key role in the primary campaign, as they took place during the two weeks between Labor Day and Primary Day when the public and the media hold their greatest focus on the election. The first of the two was carried about by the media consortium (which includes the Boston Globe, NECN, and WBUR, among others) and moderated by former New Hampshire governor Jeanne Shaheen, while the second and final debate was held by WBZ-TV and moderated by their political analyst, Jon Keller.

Convention

At the Democratic Convention on June 3 at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, each candidate needed to receive support from 15% of the delegates to be on the primary ballot in September, and there was some question as to whether Gabrieli could succeed after entering the race so late. Patrick received the convention's endorsement with 57.98% of the vote, Reilly made it with 26.66%, and Gabrieli just made it with 15.36%.[9][10] June 3 is the 154th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (155th in leap years), with 211 days remaining. ...


Major events and controversies

On August 11, Joan Vennochi of The Boston Globe wrote that Reilly's campaign had been coordinating with an alleged attempt to swiftboat Deval Patrick over his experience at Coca-Cola.[11] The "Campaign to Stop Killer Coke", a group dedicated to holding Coca-Cola accountable for violence in its Colombian bottling plant in the mid-1990s, had began to attack Patrick and his candidacy, even though he resigned from the company and said he'd done so after his attempts to get them to carry out an independent investigation were ignored and undermined[12]. Before the revelation of the Reilly campaign involvement, five Massachusetts unions filed a complaint against the group with the Office of Campaign and Political Finance,[13] a move supported by former Secretary of the Commonwealth candidate John Bonifaz[14] and based on research by David Kravitz of Blue Mass Group.[15] August 11 is the 223rd day of the year (224th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ...

General election

The general election campaign kicked off officially around 10 PM on Primary Election Day (September 19, 2006) after Tom Reilly and Chris Gabrieli conceded and Kerry Healey accepted her uncontested nomination. Deval Patrick followed with his acceptence speech at about 11 PM, appearing with his new running mate Tim Murray and former opponent Chris Gabrieli.

Debates

The first televised debate of the general election was held by Fox 25 and the Boston Herald on September 25 on Fox 25. Moderated by Fox News' Chris Wallace on the day after his infamous Bill Clinton interview, he was equally unsuccessful at keeping it under much control: despite a set of topics very in line with Kerry Healey's major issues, instead of helping her, the debate was dominated by Christy Mihos's attacks on her administration's handling of the Big Dig.

Major Events and Controversies

The general election campaign was very heated and was refered to by Mike Dukakis as "the dirtiest gubernatorial campaign in my memory"[16]. Blame for this has primarily been placed on the Healey campaign and its supporters, for many reasons, including their reliance on attack ads implying that Deval patrick supports sexual assault or murder of police (culminating in the now infamous "parking lot rape" ad), her supporters protesting at the homes of Patrick and campaign manager John Walsh (includng intimidating Walsh's 12-year-old son waiting for the school bus)[citation needed], and documents leaked anonymously to media about Patrick's brother-in-law's criminal history[17]. Michael Stanley Dukakis (born November 3, 1933) is an American Democratic politician and former presidential candidate, born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to Greek-immigrant parents. ...


Also, Grace Ross generated some controversy in the GBLT media for not promoting herself through her sexuality in the course of the televised debates.[citation needed] Also, after the final debate, WRKO talk radio host John DePetro came under scrutiny for refering to Ross as a "fat lesbian". DePetro was suspended earlier in the year for calling Turnpike Authority chief Matt Amorello a "fag".[18] John DePetro (self-nicknamed The Independent Man) is a radio talk-show host. ...

In colonial America the election of church and public officials dates almost from the founding of the Plymouth Colony, and the paper ballot was instituted in elections to the Massachusetts governorship in 1634.
The Constitution specified that elections to the House of Representatives be direct, or popular, and that the election of the Senate and of the president and vice president be indirect, Senators being chosen by the state legislatures and the president and vice president by electors selected by the people (see electoral college).
