    Include all candidates in the 5th District discussion

    The Oct. 10 editorial “Sense of mission makes Clark best choice for US House” indicated that there are five Democratic candidates in the race for the Fifth Congressional District seat. In fact, there are seven, as correctly noted in the Globe news article “Seven Democrats, three Republicans vie for Markey seat.” You do a disservice to the electoral process to ignore the two candidates who are not elected officials, Martin Long and Paul John Maisano.

    One may argue that they are weaker or stronger candidates, yet they remain candidates.
