Grossman Says Now Is Time To Make Up Ground In Governor's Race

In less than three weeks, people in Massachusetts will decide which gubernatorial candidates will face off in November’s general election. In the meantime, the endorsed Democratic candidate has some ground to make up.Although the state Democratic Party endorsed Massachusetts Treasurer Steve Grossman at its June convention, he is and admits to running behind fellow Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley. Grossman says the ramping up of debates and television ads in the lead up to the primary will change that.

“I think a lot of people are open to changing their votes based on what they see and hear and feel rather than simply what they’ve said in a poll when they get called on the telephone,” said Grossman.

Democrat Don Berwick is also running.

Tea Party candidate Mark Fisher is challenging the endorsed Republican candidate Charlie Baker in the GOP primary.

Independents Jeff McCormick, Evan Falchuk and Scott Lively are in the race as well.
