The Boston Globe: “Democratic State Senator Diana DiZoglio declared victory in her contest for state auditor late Tuesday night, leading Republican Anthony Amore by more than 17 percentage points to become the newest government watchdog.
With about 37 percent of precincts reporting, Anthony Amore, the director of security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, trailed the two-term lawmaker by more than 153,000 votes at about 11 p.m., according to unofficial results reported by the Associated Press.
“I am so excited to get to work,” DiZoglio told the crowd at a victory party for the Democratic slate at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel….
DiZoglio’s win represents “an edge up” for labor, said Steven Tolman, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO.
“For working people, that’s all we want. We don’t want a hand up or a handout, we just want a level playing field,” he said. “That is exactly what Diana DiZoglio represents. A level playing field.””
