In an exciting MA race for a rare vacant senate seat, candidate Mara Dolan joined us for a followup on this simmering campaign. Her original visit was here. Click below for today’s show.

Since the last time, the five Dems headed for a Sept. 6th primary battle have met in public as well as campaigned solo. Dolan tells us why she should be the choice from among a field that identifies as progressive. None of the Dems (or the two Republicans) have backed down or backed out. There are issues of contention and differences the candidates offer.

She discusses some of her positions, including attacking economic woes by using community colleges and trade schools to prepare MA residents for the 120,000 middle-skill jobs going unfilled right now. She talks about how Republicans have “wrongly claimed the mantle of being good for business” from Dems. She addressed the importance of aiming for gender parity in a senate with only 6 of 40 members who are women. She and Mike even swapped support for marriage equality vignettes.

Dolan comes on about 7 minutes in; we originally gave her the wrong call-in number. It’s worth advancing to where she starts.
