Marty Walsh Not Ruling Out A Future Run For President

June 21, 2022

Would U.S. Labor Secretary and former Boston Mayor Marty Walsh run for president in the future?

When asked about it this week, the Dorchester native didn’t rule it out.

“I’m not running for anything in the future right now. We’ll see what happens,” Walsh told Politico recently, in an interview published Tuesday, June 21. 

If Walsh were to run for president, he’d join a long line of Massachusetts politicians to do so.

In the 21st century alone, two presidential nominees were from Massachusetts:  then-U.S. Senator John Kerry was the Democratic Party’s nominee in 2004 and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was the Republican Party’s nominee in 2012.

Additionally, in the 2020 presidential election, four Massachusetts politicians ran unsuccessfully as members of major parties:  Democrats Elizabeth Warren (D-Cambridge), Seth Moulton (D-Salem), and Deval Patrick; and Republican Bill Weld. 


New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks —
$2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
