Video: Coakley launches bid for Massachusetts governor
Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley announced her run for governor in a video this morning.
Coakley has spent the past three years working to rebuild her political brand after losing a race for U.S. Senate to Scott Brown.
In a statement posted on YouTube, Coakley said, “I want to be a governor who makes sure everyone has an opportunity to succeed as our economy comes back. And that’s going to take an even stronger commitment to education.”
Her entrance into the governor’s race will open up the attorney general’s office for contenders in 2014 in a race that could include Secretary of State William Galvin, a Democrat, and Republican Rep. Daniel Winslow, who ran in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate during a special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry’s seat.
