Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said she still has no plans to run for governor in 2018. The Democrat told WGBH she plans to run for a second term as AG.
“I think that my job as attorney general, it’s never been as important as it is now, to do my job and do my job well,” Healey said. “Certainly, we have our hands full, so that’s what I’m focused on.”
With few candidates in the Democratic field for governor so far, there has been speculation that Healey could run.
Republican Charlie Baker has not yet announced his re-election campaign, but has consistently been fundraising recently.
When asked if there is something that should cause voters not to re-elect Baker, Healey said that’s up to the people, and that it’s too early to be talking about 2018.
