Nikki Forms Committee

The Lowell Sun reports that Nicola Tsongas has formed a congressional exploratory committee, joining Rep. James Eldridge in making the move toward running to replace Marty Meehan -- if indeed Meehan leaves to take the UMass-Lowell job.

A lot of folks want this seat to go to a woman, and some are concerned that if several get in the race (Eileen Donaghue is almost definite, Sen. Susan Tucker is likely), they will split the vote.

Others suggest (as I have here) that there is ultimately room for one Lowell-area candidate, one Lawrence/Andover candidate, and one candidate from the lower half of the district. Regardless of Tsongas's actual current address, she's a Lowell candidate.
