He didn’t ever really seem to be in, but nonetheless, it’s official today. According to State House News Service and the AP, Peter Koutoujian will not run for Middlesex DA, but instead will seek reelection to his House seat. Two other Democrats (Rhonda Bourne and Toby Fisher) had already announced that they would run for Koutoujian’s House seat – they must be rather annoyed today. It’ll be interesting to see if they stay in the race.
No Republican has yet announced a candidacy for Middlesex DA.
