Galvin Will Not Run For Mass. Attorney General

Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin says he has decided against running for attorney general and plans to seek re-election to a sixth term in his current post.
 
    Galvin, a Democrat, had been weighing a run for the state’s top law enforcement job since current Attorney General Martha Coakley announced that she would be a Democratic candidate for governor in 2014.
 
    In a statement on Tuesday, Galvin said the attorney general’s office was “enticing,” but that he had decided to continue the work he enjoys as secretary of state. He was first elected to the post in 1994 and is the state’s longest-serving constitutional officer.
 
    No other candidates have yet announced for attorney general but there is expected to be considerable interest in the high-profile state office.  Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter is expected to make an announcement this month on whether or not he’ll seek the office of Attorney General.   (Associated Press)
