Boston Herald Article Suggests Evan Falchuk May Run for MA Governor Again in 2018

Evan Falchuk

This article by Chris Villani in the Boston Herald credits United Independent Party founder and chairman Evan Falchuk with helping to end Boston’s 2024 bid to host the Olympics, and hints that he may run for governor again in 2018. An excerpt:

United Independent Party Chairman Evan Falchuk, who became a visible and vocal opponent of the Boston 2024 Olympic bid, said he would not rule out a possible run for governor in 2018.

In an appearance on Boston Herald Radio, Falchuk said the process to land the 2024 games in the Hub is part of a bigger problem.

“The Olympics revealed so much about what’s wrong with our politics,” he said. “(The United Independent Party) has got people running for office this year and we are looking forward to having candidates running in 2016. So for me, 2018 is a long way away and my wife will have something to say about it.”

Falchuk ran for governor in 2014, placing third behind Baker and Democratic nominee Martha Coakley. He received more than 71,000 votes, or just over 3 percent of the total. He said his party has welcomed more than 6,000 new members in recent months.

“Our top priority is getting people registered in the United Independent Party,” he said. “The Olympics is an example, it shows what people can do when they organize.”
