Poll: Most Important U.S. Senate Race Issue?

Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren is expected to challenge Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown.

In less than three weeks Massachusetts voters will vote in the March 6 Super Tuesday primary, and, while much focus is deservedly upon the upcoming presidential race, we decided to take a look ahead to the Sept. 6 Democratic Senate primary.

Democrats will have three choices for someone to challenge Republican Senator Scott Brown: frontrunner and Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren, immigration lawyer Marisa DeFranco, and corporate lawyer James Coyne King.

Each of the candidates lists what they believe are the most important issues in this race on their campaign websites: Scott Brown on the issues; Elizabeth Warren on the issues; Marisa DeFranco on the issues; James Coyne King on the issues. But we want to know what you think is the most important issue.

Please share your ideas by taking this poll and by commenting in the comment section below.

[Editor's note — This poll appears on the following Patches: Brookline, Waltham, Woburn, Newton, Wayland, Acton, Watertown, Weston and Jamaica Plain.]

My Son Tyler, First I would suggest some remedial English work for you involving story development, sentence construction, capitalization, use of paragraphs, spelling and grammar. You should have paid more attention in high school. (Just between us Tyler I would change my surname... something like Jones... fewer vowels and consonants. There is a dissonance between the Anglo-Saxon prename and Polish surname. Your spiritual advisor, Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III "If you are not a liberal at age twenty you have no heart.

My Son Tyler, I was too harsh with you in my last communication. Your names are fine - just tell us phonetically how to pronounce your surname. Your writing could be the result of youthful exuberance outrunning your stream of ideas. Maybe you had to work fast because your mother does not realize you are using the computer in the basement. However, you condemn "..the rich and big corporations that are in it for the money." Corporations making money are part of what make America great. Being dependent on an entitlement program is not freedom. Your spiritual advisor, Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

Ah Red! I remember him well, from my time as editor of the Watertown TAB. My great and unfulfilled goal was to find out who he really was.
