Could a a black woman and a Latino male win the Boston mayor’s race primary election?
Yes, its possible the numbers are suggesting.
In Boston, 198,000 voters are minority and 40,000 are unregistered says Kevin Peterson of the New Democracy Coalition .
He should know because he helped shaped redistricting plans.
There are many candidates in the race who are white males and votes will be shared among them.
So, if experts are right about how many votes it will take to win the primary, the two leading minorities are in.

Only YOU can decide what is best for your children, and what makes you the best parent you can be.
If you have a method of parenting that works for you, we want to hear about it! A major cable network is currently seeking families of all types who have discovered their own secret to parenting. If you’ve been dying to share how successful your parenting techniques are, this is your chance!
