Setti jumps in for Senate – Special election day in two districts – Gov on gun crimes – Mitt to hit Vegas

SETTI GETS IN: Newton mayor Setti Warren jumped into the Democratic primary field (AP) in the race to unseat Scott Brown (PI). The mayor’s announcement gave the Newton TAB a reason to live. If you don’t know who Setti Warren is, the Lowell Sun has a handy intro.And if you just want to just skip straight to crazy-talk punditry, Greater Boston has you covered with Scott Ferson and the feisty Holly Robichaud talking over each other and using grade-school hand gestures to make political points. You seriously need to watch this.

ELECTION DAY: Voters head to the polls today in the two special election districts.(AP, T&G)

MR. NEWTON, I’M GLAD YOU COULD MAKE IT: What could possibly be more fun than hanging out in Las Vegas with known party animal Mitt Romney? (PI)
