Representative Seth Moulton has secured campaign office space in Salem and Washington, D.C. — yet another indication the third-term Democrat is about to announce a 2020 bid for president.

Both offices are in co-working spaces, according to a person familiar with the congressman’s national campaign activities.

In Massachusetts, he has secured a spot inside Workbar Salem, which is next to the Bewitched statue in Lappin Park. Moulton’s team will also have an office inside The Yard in Washington, the person said.

All signs point to an imminent announcement from Moulton that he will launch a presidential campaign. Earlier in the week, a photo was published of Moulton shooting what appeared to be a campaign launch video in his hometown of Marblehead.

Moulton has also reportedly brought on new staff, including Jim Matheson, the interim director of Moulton’s PAC, as his campaign manager.

In addition, Moulton is scheduled to travel next week to New Hampshire, where, among other events, he is expected to attend a taping of a “Conversation with the Candidate” town hall meeting for local television station, WMUR-TV.
