Democrat Martha Coakley is entering the crowded 2014 race for governor.
Coakley’s campaign says she’ll be kicking off her candidacy in her hometown of Medford on Monday morning.
She’ll then begin a three-day blitz visiting 18 communities.
Coakley, who’s been popular as Attorney General, lost a special Senate election to Republican Scott Brown in 2010.
Coakley joins fellow Democrats including state Treasurer Steve Grossman, former Obama administration health care official Don Berwick, former federal and state Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem, and ex-Wellesley selectman Joe Avellone.
So far, former Harvard Pilgrim CEO Charlie Baker is the only Republican running for governor.
