Kerrigan Out in 5th District Race

Former Lancaster Selectman and one-time Tom Reilly Chief of Staff Steve Kerrigan has announced that he is withdrawing from the race to replace Congressman Marty Meehan in the fifth Congressional district. You can read his full statement at Blue Mass Group. To my knowledge, this leaves seven Democratic candidates:

  • Middlesex County Sheriff James DiPaola
  • Eileen Donoghue, former Mayor of Lowell
  • Representative Jamie Eldridge
  • Representative Barry Finegold
  • Representative James Micelli
  • David O'Brien, member of the DNC and DSC
  • Niki Tsongas, wife of the late Senator Paul Tsongas
