Live from DC
By 8:30 this morning, there were already lines of pro-life people waiting to get into the House and Senate buildings. Their reaction when they heard I was from Massachusetts brought tears to my eyes.
At Harry Reid's office, the aide said that, since Secretary of State Galvin has sent the unofficial election result, the next step is for the Attorney General of Massachusetts to certify that Senator Brown was elgible to run, etc. - Yes the Attorney General! He insisted Senator Brown will be sworn in next week.
Our MCFL caucus was attended by 325-350 people all celebrating the Senate election. Mark Rienzi, who is in charge of the Buffer Zone Appeal, told us that the Supreme Court decision yesterday on campaign finance has wording that will help if the Court takes our case.
Last year the crowd was 300,000. This year looks larger!
