There’s no winter break from politics for candidates hoping to follow Deval Patrick as Massachusetts Governor.
Former Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean endorsed State Treasurer Steve Grossman.
Attorney General Martha Coakley spent her day campaigning here in Western Massachusetts.
While visiting supporters in Holyoke, the Attorney General told 22News, Western Massachusetts will play an important role in his attempt to become Governor.
“I believe we need to work with our local folks here in Western Massachusetts, Easthampton, North Adams to figure out where the economy can grow and how the state can help,” said Attorney General Martha Coakley.
Democrats Coakley and Grossman are opposed by three other candidates. There are two hopefuls on the Republican side.
