Who’s Running for Mayor?

The low rumble you hear off in the distance isn’t thunder, it’s the stampede of Boston politicos jockeying for a mayoral run. With Tom Menino officially out of the next election, the thought of replacing him has many of Boston’s biggest political players lining up for a shot at the big chair. So far, it’s all talk—Candidates can’t apply for nomination papers until April 17, and have until May 21 to file the official paperwork. But it’s hard to blame anyone for jumping early. The Boston mayorship has rarely changed hands in recent decades. Three men—Menino, Ray Flynn and Kevin White—have run the city for the last 45 years. By comparison, there have been five popes in the same time period. A non-incumbent election is a very rare opportunity.  We’ve compiled the latest on the potential candidates to keep you abreast of the latest on who’s in, who’s out who’s playing coy when it comes to the upcoming mayoral election. Here’s how the field stands as of 11 a.m. Friday, April 5.  Did we miss anyone? Is there anyone left to miss?

Who’s the Frontrunner in GOP Senate Primary?

  The window for the three combatants for the Republican nomination in the U.S. Senate special election to make a name for themselves is a small one, with the April 30 primary just seven weeks away. Observers don’t believe there is a clear frontrunner at this point among the field of State Rep. Dan Winslow, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez. But strong fundraising, advertising and ground operations could change that quickly. Frank Talty, co-director of the UMass-Lowell Center For Public Opinion, believes that Sullivan has a “slight advantage” at the moment because of his previous job, but not enough to pull away from Winslow and Gomez at the moment. “He had received some media attention in that capacity some years ago,” Talty said. Patrick Griffin, a former GOP consultant and CEO of Manchester, N.H.-based Griffin York & Krause, doesn’t see any kind of frontrunner right now. Griffin referenced Winslow’s recent victory in a Republican straw poll Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers as not being relevant to the outcome of the race. “The straw poll doesn’t mean anything,” Griffin said. “Just ask Mitt Romney.” Talty said Winslow’s win means “he is stronger than some people thought,” but that doesn’t change the race fundamentally at this point. Winslow, from Norfolk, won 79 ballots in the straw poll, while Gomez, from Cohasset, garnered 59 votes and Sullivan, from Abington, received 55 votes, according to the Boston Globe. “The biggest problem is no one knows who the hell they are,” said Griffin of the Republicans. “The most interesting thing in this whole race was that (Democratic candidate and U.S. Congressman Edward) Markey wasn’t supposed to be challenged.” Griffin believes the GOP is going from a “rock star” in former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown to “a third-string opening act” in the current field. So what do the three candidates need to do in order to become the clear frontrunner? “If they’re smart, they’ll run a ground game and get as many people out as possible,” Griffin said. Fundraising is going to prove difficult for any of the GOP candidates given the short timeframe, according to Talty. “It’s going to be a battle for who can raise the most money,” Talty said, adding that going up with advertising statewide will also help determine who pulls away. Sullivan and Winslow both have deep connections that could benefit them in the race, according to Talty. Sullivan served in Washington during the Bush years, while Winslow was formerly Romney’s legal counsel and was “very friendly” with former Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card. Gomez is attractive as “a young, fresh face” in the state party, and Talty said all three “have a […]
