MA Delegation Digest 7/5 – 7/11/14
Senator Elizabeth Warren
Senator Ed Markey
Rep. Jim McGovern (MA-2)
Rep. Niki Tsongas (MA-3)
- Rep. Tsongas attended a memorial service for the victims and survivors of a Lowell apartment fire that killed seven and displaced more than forty last week. Governor Deval Patrick and Lowell Mayor Rodney Elliot were also in attendance.
Rep. Katherine Clark (MA-5)
- Rep. Clark had a charged back-and-forth with gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker over the Hobby Lobby ruling. After Baker made comments that the ruling shouldn’t matter to Massachusetts women (given that state law provides contraceptive coverage), Clark fired back, saying that the case “absolutely matters. And I think that it is irresponsible and out of touch of Charlie Baker to think otherwise… If he doesn’t understand that, I don’t think he should be running for governor.”
