Potential Candidates Mulling Mass. Governor Run

State House

Decision time is fast approaching for several would-be candidates in the 2014 Massachusetts governor’s race.

On the Republican side, former Harvard Pilgrim Health Care chief executive Charles Baker has suggested he’ll make an announcement near the Labor Day weekend.

Democrats are awaiting the decisions of several possible candidates, including Attorney General Martha Coakley, Congressman Michael Capuano and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone.

Coakley is expected to announce a decision sometime in September. Capuano said this week that he’ll have an announcement “soon.”

Several Democratic hopefuls have already jumped into the race, including state Treasurer Steven Grossman, former Obama administration health care official Don Berwick, former homeland security official Juliette Kayyem, and former Wellesley selectman Joseph Avellone.

The candidacy of fifth Democratic hopeful, state Sen. Dan Wolf, is up in the air.

Gov. Deval Patrick isn’t running again.
