State treasurer to run for Massachusetts governor as an independent

On its website, the Boston Globe reports Massachusetts Treasurer Timothy Cahill has annouced he will run for governor next year as an independent. Cahill left the Democratic Party earlier this year. A late July poll showed Cahill tying Democratic incumbent Gov. Deval Patrick against two possible Republicans, Charlie Baker and Christy Mihos, both of whom trailed. Mihos, who himself ran for governor as an independent in 2006, is considering switching from the gubernatorial race to the race for the Senate seat of the late Edward Kennedy.

    This is one of the races to watch. This one, Daggett in New Jersey, Whatever happens in Vermont. etc.

    We here at Third Party Revolution endorse Timothy Cahill in his campaign for Governor of Massachusetts, along with many other third party and independent candidates seeking public offices nation-wide, ranging from local to federal levels.

    Probably a smart move for Mihos. It lets Cahill consolidate that independent vote and Mihos, who was struggling in the primary anyhow, enough wiggling room to swing their active campaign and money into a bludgeon to clear their primary.
