It's up to the voters now

Tierney, Tisei both optimistic heading into today's election

(Continued)

Tisei will be making the rounds today in West Peabody, Salem, Lynn, Reading, North Andover and several other spots around the district.

“I will be out all day until 8,” he said.

The Democratic headquarters in Salem has also been buzzing.

“Many folks in this room feel like they’ve been sleeping here,” Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll said. “Whether you have five minutes or five hours, we’re putting people to work.”

As the brutal and grinding campaign comes to a close, both Tierney and Tisei like their odds.

Tierney, who has represented the district in Congress the last 16 years, said he is happy with the campaign he has run and complimented his staff and the volunteers.

“I’m feeling good; people are energized,” Tierney said. “We are ready for Election Day. We’ve got a plan in place, it’s just a matter of executing. We’ve done it before, and I’m confident we can do it again.”

Tisei, who met at least 4,000 people over the weekend at various events, said, “There are so many things you hear on the ground level about what’s going on and what people are thinking, and I think things are going pretty well. ...

“I feel like I’ve left no stone unturned. I have done everything physically possible the last 11 months to meet as many people as I can. I will sleep well tonight,” he said yesterday. “It’s in the hands of the voters.”
