Former Treasurer STEVE GROSSMAN, who chaired the Democratic National Committee from 1997 to 1999 and the state Democratic Party from 1991 to 1993, talked with Dan Rea on "NightSide" about the 2016 election and the direction of the Democratic Party. "Look, in the last week of the campaign - 10 days of the campaign - we talked about the Democrats trying to expand the map," Grossman said. "They were going to win in Georgia, they were going to win in Arizona,... Look, I was a businessman for 35 years. What's the most important thing a businessman has - businessperson has? Your customers. Take care of your customers. [Hillary Clinton] didn't go to the state of Wisconsin from the time she was nominated in Philadelphia until the day of the election. And she lost Wisconsin. You've got to speak to your most important customers - the people who have believed in you - and let them know that you're going to be there for them. That you understand. That you feel what they're going through and you're going to address their challenges. She didn't, he did, 107,000 votes, three Midwestern states, and he won those electoral votes and became president of the United States. That is a failure to understand the economic pain. Bill Clinton understood it in 1992." Listen (Feb. 13, WBZ-AM)

Boston City Councilor TITO JACKSON, who is challenging Martin Walsh for mayor, reacted on Boston Herald Radio to Joe Battenfeld's column in Tuesday's Herald - which referred to Jackson's fundraising pace as "plodding." "We are continuing to raise money, and as I've noted, when we look at what the incumbent mayor's going to have, of course he's going to have more funds," Jackson said. "But when it comes down to the support we're seeing on the ground, we have hundreds of folks who have signed up to volunteer for our campaign. And we are continuing to build our base. And we will get there relative to the fundraising. But the real issue is that we're making strides in areas such as South Boston where we stood strong with the people of South Boston to stand up against a publicly funded helipad."
