Massachusetts is front and center in the battle for control of the Democratic Party.
Come January, Democrats will be in the majority in the House, but an insurgency led by Seth Moulton, the Democratic congressman from Salem, says it's time for new leadership in the party.
They're trying to block Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's bid to return as speaker.
Moulton is under fire from a number of liberal activists, who back Pelosi and give her credit for this past election in which Democrats did so well in congressional races across the country. Many longtime Democratic leaders — like Springfield Rep. Richard Neal — are supporting Pelosi as well.
Meanwhile, the state Republican Party is reassessing its strategy after it was trounced in the elections this month. We ask: Where do they go from here?
