Campaign Check-Ins: Candidates Canvass, Poll Predicts

Published November 1, 2010

What’s news on the afternoon of this Election Eve:

  • Incumbent Gov. Deval Patrick is campaigning in central Mass. and the Merrimack Valley before a GOTV rally in Roslindale.
  • Republican Charlie Baker shook hands with commuters in Beverly this morning and travels to Braintree, Worcester, Lowell, Milton (Patrick’s home turf) and his own hometown of Swampscott.
  • Independent Tim Cahill is sticking close to hometown Quincy today. “I want people to know I’m still fighting, and I’m still in this race, so that they know they have a choice,” Cahill said.
  • Patrick maintains a 7-point lead in the latest Suffolk University poll. Independent Tim Cahill remains stuck in the single digits.
  • The Massachusetts secretary of state predicts wicked high turnout. William Galvin, who is also up for re-election, said he expects turnout to top more than 2.4 million voters, or 57 percent, rivaling the highest turnout for a non-presidential election since 1990.
