Longtime Democratic political activist, and former AIPAC president, Steve Grossman, has announced he’s running for Massachusetts state tresurer. From the Boston Globe:
"I thought it is the right time," said Grossman, 63, of Newton, who ran for governor in 2002 and has led both the state and national Democratic parties. "I want to be out early and let people know I’m running. This is not a committee formation or a trial balloon. When I do something, I try to do it decisively and bring every ounce of energy I have."
Current officeholder Tim Cahill is leaving the Democratic Party to challenge Democratic governor Deval Patrick as an independent.
