“The ‘Old Boys Club’ has dominated Massachusetts politics for centuries, and tonight’s Primary results prove that the tide has finally turned! I am thrilled that we have a strong slate of powerful, qualified women on the Massachusetts ballot for statewide office this November—including current Attorney General Maura Healey, who I can’t wait to see serve as our first woman ever elected Governor in Massachusetts!
Across the country, reproductive freedom is under attack, our democracy and voting rights are threatened, and the impacts of the pandemic linger. The fearless, proactive, and bold leadership of Maura Healey, Kim Driscoll, and Andrea Campbell is more necessary now than ever. Each one of them is experienced, inspiring, and eager to go beyond the status quo.
As a longtime cheerleader for women in politics nationally, with deep roots in Massachusetts, I am celebrating today’s results. The people have spoken, and shown once again that women are electable. Onward to November!”
