Massachusetts Beverage Business reports that a group representing the state's package stores is suing to block a proposed 2020 referendum that would let convenience-store chains, specifically Cumberland Farms, own as many liquor licenses as they want.

The plaintiffs, led by Sav-Mor Liquors Benjamin Weiner, said AG Maura Healey blew it by approving the measure, in part because it asks voters to do four separate things and the state constitution only allows ballot questions to ask voters to do just one thing at a time.

Deval Patrick might stage a Bloombergian late entry into the presidential race, which would bring the number of Massachusetts candidates back up to three - four if you include El Bloombito, who spent his formative years in Medford. Patrick is, of course, upset that none of the roughly 5,000 moderates in the race (remember Seth Moulton?) seem to have put wooden stakes in the Warren and Sanders campaigns yet.

Sen. Cory Booker plans to hold a press conference in Boston to discuss gun violence "following 17 shootings in five days in Boston that have left local leaders wondering what more can be done," according to a press release today. Booker's not looking for a lot of people to attend, it seems, because the release doesn't say where the thing will be, but does say that reporters can find out by dropping a line to one of his press people, and you know what, if this guy wants to make like it's 1988 and he's George Bush using Boston Harbor as a campaign prop, the UHub Action Mobile News Unit has better things to do.

Looks like Big Red Weld wants to primary Donald Trump. And it's possible Seth Moulton is getting over his shellacking in the house-speaker skirmish and might be gearing up as well on the Democratic side.
