Although Steve Grossman has already acknowledged a possible run for governor in 2014, the Newton resident and state treasurer is now saying that he is "leaning strongly" toward a gubernatorial bid.
As reported today by State House New Service, Grossman told WCVB's "On the Record" that he has not made a final decision on whether to run for governor, but that he is "leaning strongly in that direction" [to run].
The "On the Record" episode with Grossman aired yesterday, January 6.
Grossman, a Democrat, told WCVB that being governor is "a role I'm very comfortable playing."
Grossman also ran for governor in 2002. He was first elected state treasurer in 2010.
At this time, Lt. Gov. Tim Murray is the only other potential candidate who has expressed interest in the seat, which will be vacated next year by Gov. Deval Patrick. Murray stated at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that it was something he would "consider and look at seriously."
