Healey Makes it Official Today

Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey is due to 'officially' announce her campaign for governor at a press conference today at noon. This comes as no surprise to anyone since she unofficially announced her candidacy even before Governor Mitt Romney finally decided he was ditching the corner office. Look for her to yap about taxes and Melanie's Law and tout her experience intervening on behalf of cities and towns in the administration.

Recent poll numbers show Healey losing to either Tom Reilly or Deval Patrick. Not only that, but Healey's efforts to pump up Jonathan Dennehy's campaign were to no avail. Dennehy lost yesterday to Gardner lawyer Robert Rice by a margin of 2 to 1.
