BOSTON — Democrat Quentin Palfrey has dropped out of the race for Massachusetts attorney general with just a week to go before the 2022 primary election.
Palfrey will now endorse one of his former rivals, Democratic candidate Andrea Campbell. She is a former Boston city councilor.
“Tomorrow, Quentin Palfrey will formally endorse Andrea Campbell for attorney general after suspending his own campaign for the seat,” Campbell’s press office said in a statement.
With Palfrey’s exit, the race for attorney general is now a two-person contest. Campbell will go head-to-head with Democratic labor attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan.
Maura Healey, the Bay State’s current attorney general, is running to become the Bay State’s next governor. Gov. Charlie Baker is not seeking re-election.
Palfrey and Campbell are expected to make a formal announcement at the State House on Wednesday.
The primary election will be held on Sept. 6.
