Murray adds to the buzz over 2014 governor’s race

Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray made a high-profile declaration on Thursday that he is taking a serious look at the 2014 governor’s race, a reminder to the political class that the earliest stage of the campaign has begun, with would-be-candidates floating their names and assessing their chances.

The list is fairly thin so far, and includes potential candidates —Senator Scott Brown among them — who may also be in the mix for John F. Kerry’s US Senate seat, should he be named to a Cabinet post. Some other potential candidates are already taking themselves out of the running. Suzanne Bump, for example, said in an interview Thursday that she would focus on winning reelection as auditor.
