She was selected, not elected.
Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren today crushed immigration lawyer Marisa DeFranco’s hopes for a Democratic primary election, nabbing 95.7 percent of the state Democratic convention delegate vote which will keep DeFranco off the ballot, leaving Warren to turn her attention to incumbent Republican Scott Brown.
After the results were announced, Warren downplayed the notion that a primary could have helped her prepare for Brown.
“I’m ready, you bet. I’d love to see some debates with Scott. Let’s get started on this. I’m ready.
DeFranco said she was frustrated that the Democratic process was cut short.
“The primary process exists. If we don’t want to have a primary, shut it down,” said DeFranco, who received hugs from supporters on the convention floor as the results rolled in.
I’d question their judgment, but then again these people elected Ted Kennedy seven times after he left a woman to drown.
