Tisei rejected the idea that Democrats can take back the House and argued, as he has in the past, that it’s essential to have a Massachusetts representative in the Republican caucus.
“There isn’t an analyst in the entire country that predicts the Democrats can take back the House majority, so the question is who would best represent the district?” he said yesterday. “I think I’ll be able to get more done for the state as a member of the majority.”
“People know me; I have a 26-year record as being someone who can work with people on both sides of the aisle,” Tisei said.
Tierney, however, said that he believes the election will come down to a simple truth: 6th District voters like the Democratic plan better than what the Republicans have to offer.
“People will place great weight on the fact that they don’t want the Republicans’ anti middle-class agenda,” Tierney said.
