BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Multiple sources are saying Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healy will announce her candidacy for Massachusetts Governor.
If Healy formally announces her bid, she will join fellow Democratic candidates Danielle Allen, director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz who released the following statement Wednesday:
“I welcome the attorney general to the race. In this time of crisis, we need a robust conversation about how our government serves working families and meets our biggest challenges. Maura and I have differing records when it comes to priorities and governing, and I look forward to her joining the ongoing conversation we’re having with voters across Massachusetts.”
From the Republican party, Geoff Diehl has announced his run for Governor. Diehl is the director of business development at TRQ Auto Parts and co-owner of Boss Academy of Performing Arts.
The Boston Globe reports others who have filed paperwork to run for governor include Kimberly Duffy, Republican of Quincy; Darius Mitchell, Republican of Lowell; Luis Perez, unenrolled of North Central Correctional Institution in Gardner; Dianna Ploss of Peabody; and Orlando Silvo, Democrat of Shrewsbury.
