Tim Murray in the Lt. Gov. race?

Mariposa at Beyond 495 calls our attention to a most interesting tidbit in a holiday party invitation sent out by DDemDispatch: the invite notes that Worcester Mayor Tim Murray has confirmed his attendance in the capacity of candidate for Lieutenant Governor.

Well, well, well!  This has been rumored for some time, but nothing official has appeared on it yet.  And one can't really call this invitation an official statement of Murray's candidacy for the no. 2 job on Beacon Hill.  Nonetheless, it's pretty good evidence that, as everyone has been anticipating, Murray is indeed planning a run for Lt. Gov.

If Murray does join the race, it will shake things up substantially.  He has been Mayor of Worcester since 2001, so his experience in public office is substantially greater than any of the three declared candidates, and he's obviously got a substantial base of support in a major city.  Beyond that, I honestly don't know much about him.  But hey, the more the merrier!

I am THRILLED that Tim Murray is finally, officially, in this race. Although I am a DP supporter, I could care less whether he is courting Reilly. We need him desperately as a LG candidate. I have been saying this for six months.

Unless we realize that we're not going to win any elections without the central part of the Commonwealth, we're condemned to pressing our noses against the windows of the Corner Office (from the outside!)

A Patrick-Murray ticket would be simply marvelous. Let's go get 'em.
