BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh is seeking another four-year term.
In a letter to fellow members of the Democratic State Committee, Walsh pointed the party’s dominance in Massachusetts.
He acknowledged the gains made by Republicans in Massachusetts in 2010, most notably the election of U.S. Sen. Scott Brown in a special election to fill the seat left vacant by the death of longtime Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy.
But Walsh also pointed to what was the party’s signature achievement — last week’s election of Democratic Sen.-elected Elizabeth Warren, who will replace Brown in January.
Walsh said he’s committed to helping encourage a new generation of party leaders and also pointed to upcoming elections, including another possible special Senate election if President Obama taps Sen. John Kerry as Secretary of State.
