By Ben VolinESPN.com – May 30, 2020″He’s a champion.
I’m going to fight for him.
I will fight for his right to serve.”
That’s what Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said after his brother, Mayor Thomas Walsh, announced he would challenge Walsh for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2018.
“It is not just a Boston thing,” Walsh said of his brother’s challenge.
“It is a national issue and I think a lot of people are watching and wondering why I am in the race.”
That was back in November.
The campaign was expected to kick off in earnest at the beginning of next month.
But, according to the Globe, Walsh’s campaign announced last week that he would not be making a bid for the presidency.
“We are now at a point in time where the election will come down to who can lead the state of Massachusetts,” Walsh’s communications director, Michael J. McNulty, told the Globe.
“There is a big choice that the voters will have to make.”
Boston Mayor Marty D. Walsh is a former United States Senate Majority Leader and United States Attorney General, as well as an independent who served as president of the United States from 1994 to 1997.
The two-term Democrat is a two-time governor and served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1998 to 2004, before he ran for the state’s highest office.
In 2010, he won the Republican primary to fill the seat vacated by Gov.
The Democratic candidate, Tom Ammiano, is an attorney, a former Boston police chief and a former U.K. ambassador to New Zealand.
Former Massachusetts State Police Superintendent Michael McGrath was also expected to be in the running for the seat, but he withdrew his candidacy last week after the Globe reported that he had been under investigation for using public funds for personal expenses.
Former Boston Mayor Tom Menino is expected to run for the governor’s job, which would be the second time the seat has been held by a Democrat in more than a century.
Menino ran unsuccessfully for the office in 2010, winning with 53 percent of the vote.
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has served as a U.A.E. envoy to the U.-N.
Security Council, is also expected in the mix, according the Globe’s report.
“There are a lot more candidates out there than there are seats,” former Boston Mayor Ed Walsh said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“I think there is a lot going on and the race is being watched closely.”
He continued, “I think people are looking for someone to bring some real experience and some real passion to the table.
I think there are some really strong candidates that have the chance to bring that experience to the office.”
Boston residents and businesses will likely have to wait for at least a month for their candidate to make a formal announcement, but they can expect to hear a lot from the candidates over the coming weeks and months.
Tom Menino’s name has been floated as a potential candidate for the race and he has been campaigning for a while.
He’s also been active on social media.
Boston Mayor Tom Brady is running for governor as a Democrat.
The former Massachusetts governor has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and the federal government.
He has called the U-N.
and President Trump “cowards” and called the president’s actions a “fraud.”
Brady also served as U.P. president under President Barack Obama.
He ran for governor three times, winning the 2012 primary and defeating incumbent Attorney General Martha Coakley.
“He’ll be a governor who can fight for Massachusetts, but I think he will be a candidate that will be prepared to fight the fight against Trump and Trump’s agenda,” former Gov.
Mitt Romney told reporters earlier this month.
In a statement, Walsh said he will “continue to be a passionate advocate for all Massachusetts residents and we are excited about the prospects of Tom and his family as a candidate.”
“This campaign will provide a great platform for Bostonians and their families to engage in a campaign that will make our state a stronger place,” Walsh added.
“I look forward to working with Tom and the Walsh family as we continue to work together to build our Commonwealth.”
