Take this list with a grain of salt: Anyone can pull papers, but it could be for another candidate(Steve Quist pulled papers for several unnamed candidates last week) or in another person’s name. For example, James O’Brien was telling people this week that he had no intention of running, and that the papers had been pulled in his name by friends.
Still, it’s good to see a few new names intermingled with some old standbys. The big question now becomes who actually turns in papers with the required signatures.
