Murray Not Running For Governor; Who Should Run?

Lt. Gov. Timothy P. Murray will not run for governor in 2014, citing the demands of campaigning, serving in elected office and his desire to spend more time with his wife and two young daughters.

Lt. Gov. Timothy P. Murray will not run for governor in 2014, citing the demands of campaigning, serving in elected office and his desire to spend more time with his wife and two young daughters, reported his hometown newspaper the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester.

“It's something I have been thinking about for some time,” Murray said of the decision, which he said came after sitting down to talk it through with his wife, Tammy, and key supporters since the Christmas holidays. 

Murray, who was mayor of the City of Worcester, told the Telegram & Gazette the demands of running a campaign and serving in office can require 15- and 16-hour days, six and seven days a week and would leave him little time to be with his family.

With Murray not in the race, who do you think should run for governor?

C, Your post has been up for over 3 hours and no suggestions. Guess that about does it.

Don't be such a cynic, Joe, since most of us are hardly that compulsive about Patch. Clearly this opens the gate to Capuano, as it does to others who the Governor & Co. closed out of the Senate race. And it gives them the time - which Deval COULD have given to the Senate race as well - to raise the money and do the organizing.

Me? A cynic? Thank you, Joe.
