Money is pouring into Massachusetts' most hotly contested congressional race as Republicans see a chance to peel a seat away from Democrats by ousting Rep. John Tierney.
Republican congressional candidate Richard Tisei (tih-SAY') says he will skip this weekend's state GOP convention because of the socially conservative platform the party's state committee adopted.
Former Republican state Sen. Richard Tisei has jumped into the race for the state's 6th Congressional District seat currently held by U.S. Rep. John Tierney.
"We're going to have more than enough resources," said Tisei campaign spokesman Charlie Szold, who called spending by outside groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce a fact of life in modern campaigns.
His GOP rival, former state senator Richard Tisei, said student loan debt has soared during Tierney's time in office and that a sluggish economy has made it harder for those graduates to find good jobs to pay off their debt.
