 Talking Politics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-04)
McGovern's Republican critics are hitting the same themes as they did in the 1996 campaign -- suggesting that his liberalism will test the tolerance of a district with highly localized economic anxieties.
Perhaps the greater danger to McGovern may be if Massachusetts does eventually suffer a deep cut in highway funding; that would lend new weight to the argument for a Republican in the delegation -- currently all Democratic --to lobby the GOP congressional leadership.
Still, McGovern must be considered a likely bet to win in '98 -- and to climb fast in a delegation that may soon experience a power void.

 CITY DESK   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-04)
Given all this, McGovern’s pre-election campaign finance report, filed with the Federal Election Commission on Oct. 13, is full of surprises — the biggest one being that the congressman has spent more than $900,000 during the 2003-2004 election season.
McGovern spokesman Michael Mershon says much of the recent spending is for television ads in Providence and Boston, since the district includes Fall River and other communities close to Providence.
The question is why McGovern, a wildly popular figure in Worcester at least, felt the need to dump nearly a million clams into defeating Crews, a pastor and former state legislator from Georgia who is best known for his leadership of Massachusetts’ anti-gay marriage movement.
