State Senators = Wimps?

Steven Baddour of Methuen announced today that he won't run for the congressional seat, if Marty Meehan leaves for the UMass-Lowell job. That appears to make it official that we won't have a single state senator in the race.

Susan Tucker of Andover has already decided she won't run. So have Steve Panagiotakos of Lowell and Pam Resor of Acton, if I'm not mistaken. And, if I'm not mistaken, those are the only four state senators who live in the 5th district; Antonioni, Chandler, Fargo, and Havern also represent portions of the 5th but don't live there, and as far as I know, none are considering a run.

The last time a congressional seat opened up like this, five state senators went for it: Democrats Stephen Lynch, Brian Joyce, Cheryl Jacques, and Marc Pacheco, and Republican JoAnn Sprague.
