At a press conference today, a reporter asked Mayor Walsh for his comments on City Councilor Andrea Campbell's announcement that she's running for his job in next year's election.
Walsh praised Campbell for her dedication to the city and thanked her for calling him yesterday morning to let him know of her decision.
"We both share a passion for making Boston a great place," he said.
He then continued, "I look forward to having the conversations about advancing Boston at some point in the future." He added: "There'll be plenty of time to talk about campaigning and all that stuff, right now I'm focused on my job as mayor of the city of Boston."
So is that an announcement? "Not right now," he said, and smiled.
