Many say that Massachusetts' 10th District is the best chance for the GOP to pick up a congressional seat in the state. The seat is currently held by Democrat Bill Delahunt, who will retire this year.

The district includes most of the South Shore and all of the Cape and Islands, and in the special Senate race earlier this year it voted 60% for Republican Scott Brown. Norfolk County District Attorney Bill Keating, who is a Democrat, and Republican State Representative Jeff Perry will vie for the seat in November.

We spoke with Perry the day after the primary, and we speak with Keating today.

Guest:

  • Bill Keating, Norfolk County district attorney and democratic candidate for U.S. Congress in the Massachusetts 10th district.

This program aired on September 27, 2010.
