Tomorrow’s Globe will run a story on the (so far) nine folks that would be interested in running for Congress should Marty Meehan become the Chancellor of UMass-Lowell. Meehan says he interviewed with the search committee, but he also says “I am happy doing what I am doing.” Not that he wouldn’t necessarily be happier doing something else … way to leave the door open, Marty.
Anyway, Niki Tsongas, Steve Baddour, yadda yadda. No surprises. The best comment on the whole thing, however, belongs to our friend and blogger extraordinaire Dick Howe:
“We’ve been through this before when he was going to run for governor and senator,” said Richard Howe, the Middlesex North register of deeds, who said he will not run. “Everyone gears up to run, and then nothing happens. I just decided not to worry about it.”
