Goldberg Wins Democratic Primary For Mass. Treasurer

Deb Goldberg has won a three-way Democratic primary for Massachusetts state treasurer.

The former Brookline selectwoman defeated state Sen. Barry Finegold of Andover and state Rep. Tom Conroy of Wayland in Tuesday's voting.

Goldberg will face off with Republican nominee Michael Heffernan of Wellesley in the November election. Ian Jackson of the Green-Rainbow party will also be on the ballot.

Goldberg's family founded the Stop & Shop supermarket chain and she previously served in executive positions with the company.

Goldberg has made expanding the state's financial literacy program a centerpiece of her campaign. She says all Massachusetts residents should have the information they need to avoid falling into debt or foreclosure.

She ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 2006.
