“Last time it was just a race to meet as many people as I could,” Tisei said. “When you’re starting off in a district with 770,000 people, it’s not the same as running for state rep or state Senate where so many people get to know you. The reason we were so close last time is that I was able to meet so many people and cobble together a coalition of people who weren’t happy with the status quo and wanted a change. I feel this election is, I am starting where I left off and I just need to meet a few more people, particularly in the Amesbury-Newburyport area where people don’t know me as well as some of the other regions.”
