Tolman Passes On Mass. Senate Bid

August 17, 2011
The Democratic primary field is already crowded, with six candidates in and former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau special adviser Elizabeth Warren doing a listening tour and seemingly gearing up to launch a bid as well. A Tolman entrance would also have splintered further the already finely diced left wing of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. His good government credentials, from his days as a "Clean Elections" candidate and legislative insurgent under a conservative Democratic speaker many critics derided as autocratic, are strong. But they find supporters among blocs of activists already committed to other clean-government Democrats in the race, like former lieutenant governor nominee Bob Massie and CityYear co-founder Alan Khazei. Tolman, an attorney at Holland & Knight and regular commentator on Boston television, has told associates he was reluctant to commit to a job in Washington that would pull him away from his family. And there's another family entanglement -- his brother Steven, a state senator, recently launched a campaign for the presidency of the state AFL-CIO.
