Statement of Attorney General Tom Reilly

"I have a great respect for Marie St. Fleur. I appreciate that her primary interest is in protecting her family and, as a result, she's decided not to run a campaign for Lieutenant Governor.

Marie is going to continue to work with me as I campaign on the values we both share: That Massachusetts must get moving again, that change at the top is required to do so and that ordinary working people need a voice in the Corner Office.

I will keep working to bring change to Massachusetts but will do so without a formal running mate. As I said before, there are many qualified Democratic candidates for Lieutenant Governor and I will be happy to serve with any of them."
