TELL US: Who Should Run For Governor?

Governor Deval Patrick won't run again, and Lt. Gov. Tim Murray wants the job. So do Treasurer Steve Grossman and 2010 Republican candidate Charlie Baker. Who do you think should run for governor?

Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray could hold out any longer. On Thursday, he told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce he'd like to be governor, according to WBUR. 

Mind you, he didn't say he would run, just that he wants to be governor. With the election two years away, starting an official campaign now would be a bit premature. 

But Murray's not alone. Governor Deval Patrick has said he will not run in 2014, leaving the door open for Murray and a host of other suitors to the office. State treasurer Steve Grossman and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker have also expressed interest in a run in 2014. And it wasn't so long ago that Scott Brown was greeted with shouts of "Governor!" during is concession speech. 

Who do you think should run for governor? Is there someone out of the box you think would make a great leader of the commonwealth? Or do you want one of these Massachusetts heavyweights to square off for the corner office? Tell us in the comments below.

"Knuckle-dragging troglodytes"?? Diana, I have come to the conclusion that you are either (1) in desperate need of therapy for your low self-esteem issues or (2) a 50 year old male...

First question I would ask of any candidate is "What's their position on Gun Control". If anybody has less than a D rating of is receiving campain funds from the NRA, IMO they should not be elected. Another random shooting yesterday @ two school busses in MA. We need better gun control and punishments in MA. Not a politition looking to clime the political ladder. Our own X Senator Brown was the largest recipient of campain funds from the NRA. See who you are voting for before you vote.
