STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 10, 2017....Sen. Eileen Donoghue intends to seek re-election in 2018, passing on an opportunity to run for the Congressional seat that narrowly eluded her a decade ago, she told the News Service Tuesday afternoon.

Donoghue, serving in her seventh year as a state senator from Lowell, said she gave "a lot of thought" to the prospect of another campaign for the Third District seat, but opted against entering the already crowded field.
