    An interesting choice - a potential Yankee presidential candidate with conservative Southern values basing his candidacy in liberal Boston. The liberal media may have a hard time keeping all of this
    straight. :)


    Romney plans campaign base in North End

    By Scott Helman, Globe Staff | November 29, 2006​

    Governor Mitt Romney, erasing any doubt that he intends to make a White House bid in 2008, is laying plans to run his presidential campaign from a three-story waterfront building at the edge of Boston's North End, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the proposed deal.

    Romney's decision to base his campaign in Boston would end speculation that the governor, who often pokes fun at Massachusetts' liberal reputation before out-of-state Republican audiences, was looking to put his headquarters in his native Michigan, a more politically moderate state where his father was a three-term governor.

    Boston has a strong conservative base. The Boston Herald is a great alternative to the liberal Boston Globe. There is a libertarian radio host on a talk station named Jay Severin who is wildly popular, and guys like Howie Carr have big followings as well.

    That's right. I had forgotten about those voices of reason in Boston. :)
