SEN. L'ITALIEN READY TO RUN FOR CONGRESSIONAL SEAT

By Matt Murphy

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 13, 2017....The Democratic field for an open Congressional seat in 2018 has begun to take shape with state Sen. Barbara L'Italien on Wednesday opening an exploratory committee and saying she's moving "full steam ahead" with her campaign.

L'Italien, an Andover Democrat, announced she would take the formal step of setting up a federal campaign committee that will allow her to begin fundraising for a potential run next year. She anticipates needing to raise at least $2 million over the next year to run a competitive race.

Former lieutenant governor nominee Steve Kerrigan is also inching toward a run, according to a close associate who believes it's increasingly likely that the former aide to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy will run for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas.
