Lynch expresses shift on abortion rights

Regarding two front-page stories Tuesday on the Massachusetts senatorial race (“GOP is finding few takers” and “Lynch changes tone on abortion rights”): US Representative Stephen Lynch has a history of opposing abortion rights, and that plays well in his district. When he needs to appeal to a less parochial constituency, he emulates Mitt Romney and morphs his stance.

The Republicans may be having a hard time fielding a senatorial candidate, but with Democrats like Lynch, who needs Republicans?
