Adam Hinds Weighs In On Not Making Primary Ballot In Race For Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts

June 7, 2022

State Senator Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfield) won’t be the next lieutenant governor of Massachusetts.

He failed to receive support from at least 15 percent of the delegates at the Massachusetts Democratic Party convention in Worcester over the weekend; he got support from 12 percent of them.

Candidates who don’t get at least 15 percent of the delegates don’t make the September primary ballot.

Hinds put out a statement on Twitter addressing his loss.

My campaign for Lieutenant Governor ended this weekend at the @massdems convention,” Hinds tweeted. “I’m genuinely excited to find other ways to fight for the big issues that got me in this race. Meanwhile, a lot of work in the @MA_Senate (in Senate until Jan ‘23) and more time w family! #mapoli.
