BLOWBACK OVER SETTING OF DAY-AFTER-LABOR DAY PRIMARY [+VIDEO]

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, JAN. 9, 2018.....Scheduling the statewide primary elections for the day after Labor Day is "a brazen example" of Secretary of State William Galvin "trying to depress voter turnout," the secretary's Democratic challenger said Tuesday.

Josh Zakim, the Boston city councilor challenging Galvin for the Democratic nomination as secretary of state, lashed out at Galvin after the secretary announced Tuesday that he's scheduled the primaries for Sept. 4 after navigating a calendar full of religious holidays and other constraints.
