DONOGHUE SEEKING RE-ELECTION, LOWELL SENATOR WON'T RUN FOR CONGRESS

By Matt Murphy
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

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.

"While I continue to think the issues are critically important, and in some respects more important than they were ten years ago, I do honestly believe that I can be of best service staying where I am in the Senate for my district," Donoghue said.
