2012 Election | Massachusetts | Richard Tisei

Gay Candidate Richard Tisei Releases Unconventional Ad: VIDEO


This actually is nice, Massachusetts U.S. House candidate Richard Tisei. Thank you. While airing a beach ad right after the East Coast's most devastating hurricane in history may be bad timing, a double-digit lead over Democratic incumbent John Tierney may allow for a little risk taking.

Watch Tisei's video AFTER THE JUMP.

  3. Not just any beach, but the place of origin for the fishing boat in The Perfect Storm. Oh, the irony!

  4. Nice spot but being a North Shore constituent I would have appreciated more ads outlining Tiesi's platform. All he has done is lambasted his opponents's wife's family. Other than being a gay Republican I know NOTHING about Tiesi. The incumbent Tierney has been an advocate for gay rights and he is a Democrat. Being a gay Republican is like being a black member of the KKK. Pretty beach scene aside, I will vote for Tierney because I know where he stands politically.

  5. Isn't that one of Mitt Romney's houses? Not the one with the car elevator, but the one his horse lives in.

  7. Tisei is a good guy (I used to live in his district years ago) despite being a Republican but I don't see what place he'll have in the US House of Representatives, where there's not room for much beyond straight party-line votes. If he strays from the Republicans he'll get shut out… he'd really be much better staying in quirky Massachusetts politics where he'd have a shot at being Governor or something someday.

  8. Lifetime MA resident and Dem here, live in the district. I've voted for his opponent, John Tierney, every 2 yrs, but I can no longer do that after all the lies.

    I'm voting Obama-Warren-Tisei this time around. He fought for marriage equality in MA, is pro-choice, and has refused to sign Nordquists no tax pledge. Seems reasonable, and a million times better than his opponent.

  10. @Actual Ma Voter: If Tisei is everything you say he is, he sounds like the right choice. However, I can't imagine that he will have much influence in the Republican House caucus.
