Sal in Rhode Island? – Lynch and Neal hit the trail in new districts – Dogs hate Romney

SPEAKING SPEAKER: Make all your North End vs. Federal Hill jokes now, since Sal DiMasi may not be in Rhode Island very long. (Herald)

ARMS EVERYWHERE: RMG is up in arms over the Democrats being up in arms over the Marlborough GOP. BMG is up in arms over the Globe’s perceived double standard in the way they treat hacks of all parties.

MASTER OF HIS DOMAIN: Does Stephen Lynch think Taunton is in his new district? I guess campaigning everywhere is just easier than keeping track of all those SE Mass. towns. And speaking of running in new towns, it looks like Rich Neal’s Democratic opponent Andrea Nuciforo is looking to hit him on the topic du jour of campaign finance. (Gazette, Republican)
