Former Homeland Security adviser Juliette Kayyem announced Wednesday that she will run for governor of Massachusetts.
Kayyem, a Democrat, currently lectures at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Prior to her lecturing post Kayyem served as assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs at the Department of Homeland Security under Janet Napolitano. Kayyem joins four other Democrats who plan on running for governor. So far no Republicans have entered the race. The general election is scheduled for November 2014.
