Political Rundown: Lt. Gov. Murray Announces Resignation, Senate Race Heats Up
Big news in Massachusetts politics today: Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray announces his resignation effective June 2, while Democratic Congressman Edward Markey and Republican nominee Gabriel Gomez appear to have shifted strategies with their latest TV ads.
WBUR, “Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray is expected to announce his resignation Wednesday to accept a position as president and CEO of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, according to a senior official in Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration.”
The Boston Globe, “Markey’s firmer tone was a bid to end a squabble about two relatively obscure congressional resolutions that Gomez drove to the center of the race this week. A former Navy SEAL, he has seized on the resolutions to try to paint Markey as soft on homeland security.”
