State Democratic party chairman to step down

Walsh expected to takeover Patrick’s PAC

John Walsh, who helped guide Deval Patrick to the governorship in 2006 and has overseen a Democratic grass-roots revival that provided a template for President Obama’s campaign, will step down from the party chairmanship this fall, according to a close political associate.

Walsh will take over leadership of Patrick’s political action committee, Together PAC, as Patrick moves into the final stage of his governorship: one in which he fends off lame-duck status, as 2016 national ticket speculation swirls.
