Congrats to Moulton on his win, and Tisei for being a class candidate until the end

Not a lot of free time to write tonight, but I have to say that I have even more respect for Richard Tisei after just watching his concession speech on NECN.

No doubt it was a tough result to swallow for Richard, but his concession speech was as gracious as it gets.

Congrats to Seth Moulton on his victory.

But like I’ve written in this space before: We would have been well served in Congress no matter which man won this election.

I’ll have a full recap and more commentary on the results both locally and across the state tomorrow.

In the local State House races, Ted Speliotis won by a comfortable margin over hard-working challenger Tom Lyons, and Republican Leah Cole upset Peabody School Committee member Beverley Dunne for the second time in the 12th Essex District.

Official results from City Clerk Tim Spanos on the 12th Essex race:

Cole 7,264

Dunne 6,829

    OG says…I get a good feeling from Richard Tisei that he is a genuine kind of person-perhaps almost too nice for the political jungle…Now Moulton is so new on the local scene that I have not yet been able to gauge things with him just yet….I do think that his rise to victory for virtual obscurity is a great story…and listening to him deliver his victory speech last night I have to tell you that he may indeed turn out to be the real deal…and that’s how OG sees it.

    Single classiest concession speech I have ever heard, but as OG says, Moulton is the real deal. He will be something special, I can feel it.

    Rumor is Baker is considering Tisei to be part of his administration. Not surprising as he ran with Baker in 2010. Also a good choice IMO since he seems to have bipartisan interests.
