Former Former Massachusetts Senate minority leader Richard Tisei announced that he will not run in the special Senate election to fill the seat vacated by John Kerry.
Former Massachusetts Senate minority leader Richard Tisei announced that he will not run in the special Senate election to fill the seat vacated by John Kerry. On Friday, after former Sen. Scott Brown announced that he will not run for the seat, all eyes turned to Tisei, who announced he was considering running. But on Saturday, Tisei put a stop to that, citing bad timing and a desire to see others have a shot at the seat. "I've been humbled by so many people who've urged me to run for this seat, following Senator Scott Brown's decision not to run on Friday," Tisei wrote in a statement Saturday night. "I believe it's imperative that the Republican party put forward a strong candidate who can help bring much-needed change to Washington. …

The battle for the 6th District seat is over.
Congressman John Tierney has defeated Republican challenger Richard Tisei in an extremely tight race for Massachusetts 6th District congressional seat. This has been an unusually high-profile congressional race in Massachusetts, which is considered a stronghold for House Democrats. Tierney suffered from the impact of a family scandal involving his wife, her brother and her brother’s illegal offshore gambling business. Tisei, on the other hand, climbed to popularity with his aggressive campaign, his theme of bipartisanship and his years of serving in the state legislature. He out-raised Tierney in campaign donations every quarter. Tisei made Tierney’s family legal scandal a focus of the campaign, calling Tierney’s credibility into question…

All this, in the midst of a federal budget crisis, Medicare, student loans, abortion, high unemployment and more. We want to know what issue is the biggest deciding factor in your vote in the 6th District race. Discuss…

Former Sen. Richard Tisei announced his candidacy for the 2012 U.S. Congress elections Tuesday in Wakefield.
Former state Sen. Richard Tisei announced on Tuesday morning he will run for the U.S. House of Representatives, pledging to offer voters a choice against Democratic incumbent John Tierney (D-Salem) in 2012, and a commitment to "turn the country around." Calling Rep. Tierney "one of the most ideological left-wing members" who has become part of the "great divide" in Washington, Tisei said Tierney's stance on raising taxes, increasing government spending, and creating more regulations for small businesses doesn't accurately represent the people of the 6th District. "This district needs an independent-minded Congressman," Tisei said during his announcement to run for office at the Americal Civic Center in Wakefield, his hometown. "The people …
