Mass. AG Maura Healey: I’m Not Running for Governor

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey isn't planning on running for a higher office.

That's what she said Wednesday evening on Broadside when she joined host Joe Battenfeld to talk about a variety of topics.

Healey, a Democrat, cited her commitment to serving state residents as their attorney general, and expressed hope about being re-elected.

She's been floated by political observers as a potential challenger to Governor Charlie Baker in 2018.

"Well, first of all, I am not running for governor. I am Attorney General," she started before Battenfeld interrupted her.

"In four years? Three years?" Battenfeld asked.

"Absolutely not," Healey said.

"Totally ruled out?"

"Absolutely," Healey said, quickly adding, "What I hope to be in a position to do four years from now is be in a position where I've done a good enough job as attorney general and people would like to see me re-elected as attorney general."

In the exchange, Healey added that she hopes Battenfeld holds her to her words.
