TELL US: Who Should Run For Massachusetts Governor?

Gov. Deval Patrick won't run again, and Lt. Gov. Tim Murray wants the job. So do Treasurer Steve Grossman and 2010 Republican candidate Charlie Baker. Who do you think should run for governor?


Lt. Gov. Tim Murray could not hold out any longer. On Thursday, he told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce he'd like to be governor, according to WBUR. 

Mind you, he didn't say he would run, just that he wants to be governor. With the election two years away, starting an official campaign now would be a bit premature. 

But Murray's not alone. Governor Deval Patrick has said he will not run in 2014, leaving the door open for Murray and a host of other aspirants for the office. State treasurer Steve Grossman and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker have also expressed interest in a run in 2014. And it wasn't so long ago that Scott Brown was greeted with shouts of "Governor!" during his concession speech. 

Who do you think should run for governor? Is there someone out of the box you think would make a great leader of the commonwealth? Or do you want one of these Massachusetts regulars to square off for the corner office? Tell us in the comments below.

Wow, I can't believe that people think that everything they see on the news, TV ads, the newpaper, or whatever else is the TRUTH. Everyone of the above has their own agenda. Why can't anyone today do their own research and follow what this these people running for election are really about and then make a common sense educated decision. Oh right, if I saw it on tv it must be true! Give me a break

Deval's not listening, you can count on that. Vote Scott Brown! He believes in putting US citizens first. He laughs at the idea of amnesty to criminals. SCOTT BROWN FOR GOVERNER!

That is the day I pack up my house and family, throw my damn property taxes out the window and drive far, far away! ZERO tolerance for giving children of criminals preferential treatment over LEGAL US citizen children.
