The 75-year-old Conte has been Worcester’s DA for 30 years. He’s probably not thrilled that the biggest thing to happen at the end of those 30 years was his receipt of an ill-fated phone call from Tom Reilly and his related non-prosecution of a 20-year-old who may or may not have violated the state’s social host law, but them’s the breaks. Joe Early Jr., the former congressman’s son, has already said he would run for the seat (not much of a website at this point, though). Now that Conte’s out, we may see a flurry of additional candidates jumping into the race.
