Down to the wire

May 21, 2007

Dan Rizzo and Anthony Petruccelli are going down to the wire with a full slate of heavy campaigning for former senator Robert Travaglini’s empty seat.

Despite major campaigns launched by both candidates, turnout is expected to be light. A heavier turnout in Revere boosts Rizzo’s chances of beating Petruccelli while a smaller turnout in Revere works the opposite effect.

Handicappers believe the race to be close. Experts claim the election will be won on primary day – next Tuesday – with the campaign best able to pull out the vote coming away victorious.
