The Mayoral Race

Eleven mayoral candidates, one day on the trail

More than 3,000 handshakes (but not a baby kissed). Innumerable words, 118 appearances. Little time for food or family. Finish line closing in. Every mayoral race is a marathon. This one is no different.

About this story

Boston Globe reporters spent Thursday — from before dawn until midnight — chronicling the 11 candidates who are actively campaigning for mayor. Some candidates allowed reporters to follow them into their homes and inside their campaign vehicles, while others who would not agree to that level of access were observed at public events.
