WORCESTER – Maura Healey and Kim Driscoll, the Democratic nominees for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, will make their first public appearance as a ticket in Worcester today.
The duo visited with small businesses and greeted residents at the Worcester Public Market, and spoke with media at the Wachusett Brewing Company.
Salem Mayor Driscoll, who won the Lt. Governor Democratic race yesterday Tweeted “Team Healey-Driscoll has a nice ring to it! So proud to stand with @maura_healey in #Worcester and excited to criss-cross Massachusetts to listen to voters and earn their support this November. This is the team that will move our Commonwealth forward.”
Healey, the Commonwealth’s Attorney General, is seeking to be the first woman elected as Governor in Massachusetts.
Jane Swift, a Republican was the first woman to hold the position as Governor of Massachusetts, but she was not elected. She took over as Governor when former Governor Paul Cellucci became the U.S. Ambassador to Canada. Swift was just 36, and delivered twins while Governor.
If the Democratic ticket is elected it will be the first time in the history of the Commonwealth a woman has held both the Governor and Lt. Governor seat.
Team Healey-Driscoll will battle Republican Geoff Diehl and Leah Allen. Diehl has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
The election is November 8.
