Former US attorney Sullivan eyes Senate bid

Former US attorney Michael J. Sullivan said Thursday that he is launching a grass-roots effort to get his name on the Republican primary ballot for US Senate.

Sullivan, whose entry into the Republican primary would re­define what appeared to be a two-person contest, said he will run in the special election if “a groundswell’’ of supporters pushing his candidacy can collect the10,000 signatures needed to qualify for the ballot before the deadline less than two weeks from now.
