BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — With the Massachusetts Primary just under two months away, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh told WBZ NewsRadio he has not yet chosen a 2020 Democratic candidate to campaign for or endorse.

"I haven't made a decision yet," Walsh told WBZ NewsRadio's Mike Macklin when asked if he'd consider campaigning with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, though he added he's "talked to everyone" running.

Though Sen. Warren and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick are locals, Walsh also has ties to another 2020 candidate—former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden attended Walsh's second swearing-in ceremony in 2018, and the pair were seen touring Boston's Seaport District together last summer.

Walsh said he's more concerned with Democratic unity than with picking a candidate at this point.

"There are four or five people now that have real shots at potentially becoming the nominee," Walsh said. "After it's over, as Democrats, we need to unite behind whoever gets the nomination, to win back the White House."

Last election cycle, Walsh endorsed Hillary Clinton, holding a rally for the future 2016 Democratic presidential candidate at Faneuil Hall in November 2015.
