Who will challenge Menino next year?
Will Dorcena, who ran a solid but losing campaign for city council last year, has declared that he will take on that suicide mission. I don't think John "JC Pennies" Connolly will try it, especially after slipping out of the top at-large spot. I haven't heard much about anyone looking at it, beyond prepping in case Menino doesn't run.
One person who could give it a serious shot: DA Dan Conley. If I was him, I'd be thinking about it.
