Danielle Allen Makes It Official — She’s Running For Governor of Massachusetts

June 15, 2021

Danielle Allen has made it official.

She will run for governor of Massachusetts. The 49-year-old Democrat is a political science professor at Harvard University, as WCVB reports. She hopes to be the first black woman governor in Massachusetts history. Allen is one of two Democrats to announce thus far. The other is former state Senator Ben Downing (D-Pittsfield), who announced back in February.

On the Republican side, no one has announced a run for governor yet, although former state Representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman) has expressed interest. It’s unclear if incumbent governor Charlie Baker will seek a third term — or if lieutenant governor Karyn Polito will run for governor instead.
