Endorsement Corner: Rep. Holmes backs Lake in lieutenant governor bid

State Rep. Russell Holmes, a Mattapan Democrat, is supporting Mike Lake for lieutenant governor, the campaign announced this week. “Mike knows that strengthening and supporting startups and small businesses is vital to establishing a competitive and thriving economy for our Commonwealth,” Holmes said in a statement. “He has the experience and keen understanding of the job ecosystem to strengthen our economy and increase the value of our public education.”

Lake, a Melrose Democrat who has also been endorsed by former Gov. Dukakis, ran for state auditor in 2010 and came up short. The other Democratic candidates for lieutenant governor include Steve Kerrigan, Leland Cheung, Jonathan Edwards, and James Arena DeRosa.
