Thomas McGee may lead state Democratic party

State Senator Thomas M. McGee is emerging as the leading candidate to be the next chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, say political activists and leaders.

McGee, a Lynn Democrat who has both strong urban roots and support from the party’s liberal wing, would replace outgoing chairman John Walsh if he is elected to the post. The election will probably take place in October.
