Boston’s potential mayoral candidates

For the first time since then-acting mayor Thomas M. Menino was elected in 1993, Boston’s mayoral race is without incumbents. Many local politicos have for years said they would run for mayor only if Menino stepped out of the race, and the mayor’s exit launched what could be an unpredictable free-for-all. The field is expected to change by May 13, the application deadline for nomination papers. Here are locals who either declared their candidacy, said they may be interested in running, or are frequent subjects of speculation for who will replace Menino.
