The Reillys of Watertown

WATERTOWN

Some say she's the quiet force behind Attorney General Thomas Reilly.

The Globe takes a look today at Ruth Reilly as part of its series on the wives of gubernatorial candidates.

The Globe says that when the Reillys had a fire and had to move temporarily from their Watertown apartment to West Roxbury three years ago, Ruth Reilly never really left Watertown.

Every morning for a year, she drove her navy blue 1999 Toyota Camry back to the old neighborhood to attend 7:30 a.m. Mass at St. Patrick Catholic Church, just as always. Then, she and her best friend would set off for a long walk.

Thomas Reilly is vying with Deval Patrick and Chris Gabrieli for the Democratic nomination.
