The 2014 race starts early

So much for Tim Murray's sweep to the 2014 Democratic nomination for governor.

It's way to soon to tell what the fallout will be from revelations that he was cell phone buddies with former Chelsea Housing Authority boss Michael McLaughlin. No word if he even knew how much McLaughlin was pulling down -- and not admitting to -- as the highest paid public employee in the state.

His relationship certain did not affect how Deval Patrick lowered the ax on McLaughlin or the Chelsea Housing Authority. But take this story along with the L-G's early morning ride in search of coffee and a newspaper and you can be sure Murray's name recognition is a lot higher than it is today.

CORRECTION: Thanks to the anonymous commenter who pointed out that I delayed the next governor's race by two years. Obviously it is in 2014, not 2016 as I initially wrote.

Unless I'm confused the next Gov race is 2014.
