Attorney General Maura Healey Endorses Andrea Campbell to Succeed Her as Attorney General

BOSTON – Today, appearing on GBH’s Boston Public Radio, Attorney General Maura Healey, who is running for Governor, endorsed Andrea Campbell in her candidacy to succeed Healey as the next Massachusetts Attorney General.

“I’m voting for Andrea Campbell. I have a pretty good sense of what’s required to lead that office. Andrea brings the combination of judgment, skill, compassion, and really will center the work, as I’ve tried to do, on the people of the state,” said AG Healey to Boston Public Radio’s Jim Braude and Margery Egan when asked if she’s endorsing in the AG race.

In addition to AG Healey, Andrea has also earned the support of former Massachusetts Attorneys General, Frank Bellotti, Jim Shannon, Martha Coakley and Scott Harshbarger.

“To say I’m grateful for Maura’s vote and support is an understatement,” said Campbell. “As your next Attorney General, I will build on her legacy as the people’s lawyer. Working hand-in-hand with Maura as our next Governor, I’ll hold the powerful accountable and protect the rights of residents across the state, no matter where you live or where you come from.”

Campbell will take the stage with her fellow candidates tonight in the first Attorney General Democratic Primary Debate, airing at 6:30 PM on YouTube and 7:00 PM on GBH Channel 2.
