Acrimony lingers for Tierney, Tisei in 6th District race
If US Representative John F. Tierney on Tuesday becomes the first Massachusetts Democrat knocked from Congress in 20 years, it will be because he has lost voters like Michael Shapiro. The construction company owner has voted for Tierney every time he has appeared on the ballot. But Shapiro is impressed by Republican Richard Tisei and thinks eight terms may be enough for Tierney, dogged by the gambling scandal that engulfed his wife’s family. Tierney on the stump emphasizes he is the same congressman voters have repeatedly reelected.
