BOSTON (WWLP/SHNS) – Attorney General Maura Healey is beginning her campaign Thursday for governor of Massachusetts.

The two-term attorney general made a name for herself during former President Donald Trump’s years in the White House as one of many Democratic prosecutors across the country who filed dozens of lawsuits against the Republican administration to enforce environmental regulations and to immigration policy.

Healey has also fought to protect abortion rights around the country, sued opioid manufacturer Purdue Pharma and took on student loan companies that she thought were taking advantage of borrowers.

“I’ve stood with you as the People’s Lawyer, and now I’m running to be your Governor,” Healey says in a campaign video. “To bring us together and come back stronger than ever.”

Healey says she will focus on getting our economy back on track, making child care more affordable, modernizing our schools so every child learns in a safe and sustainable environment, and addressing the climate crisis.

Currently, there are two other candidates in the Democratic race, including Boston Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz and Harvard professor Danielle Allen. Former state Sen. Ben Downing also campaigned over the last year but announced in December that he would be dropping out due to a lack of financial resources.

Chang-Diaz issued a statement Wednesday evening welcoming Healey to the race.

“In this time of crisis, we need a robust conversation about how our government serves working families and meets our biggest challenges. Maura and I have differing records when it comes to priorities and governing, and I look forward to her joining the ongoing conversation we’re having with voters across Massachusetts,” Chang-Diaz said.

Republican Governor Charlie Baker says he will not be seeking reelection this year. As for Republican candidates, Geoff Diehl has announced a bid for Governor.
