Fred Clarkson has some Special Election updates on his Kos Diary
. His report on what Article8 wants is very funny:
Now you may have been wondering what is the far right thinking about these races. No? Well I was. So I checked back at the web site of the Article 8 Alliance -- which has posted a handy detailed round-up of the three races. The Article 8 Alliance, the virulently anti-marriage equality group that was so active in the 2004 legislative races (and distinguishes itself with persistent antigay bigotry) doesn't seem to have the juice to do much this time.

will be having updates all the way to election day. I'll try to keep up.The Eagle is reporting on the campaign contributions
to the 3rd Berkshire candidates:
Malumphy and Serre are clearly splitting the support of the influential activist group WHEN, Women Helping Empower Neighborhoods.
Ann Dulye of Pittsfield, a member of WHEN's communications committee, donated $500 to Malumphy, while Serre received $100 from Register of Deeds Mary K. O'Brien, who is on WHEN's steering committee.
Both also received support from former Pittsfield mayors: Malumphy got $500 from Robert Capeless, and Serre received $285 from Sara Hathaway, now communications director with the New England Heritage Breeds Conservancy and Project.
Malumphy also received $500 from Nancy Fitzpatrick, owner of the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge.
Serre, the economic development specialist for U.S. Rep. John W. Olver, D-Amherst, was also supported by Olver ($150) and Olver's chief of staff, Hunter Ridgway ($75).
Kinnas, one of the Republicans, has raised a total of $200 (from himself) and hasn't spent it all yet. There's something admirable about that.
