Setti Warren for U.S. Senate

Newton Mayor Setti Warren announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate today, releasing a video giving voters some background on him, as well as what he see as differences in philosophy between him and Senator Scott Brown. Mayor Warren has compiled an impressive resume, including a military stint in Iraq as an intelligence officer. Mayor Warren has been to Methuen to learn firsthand what the impacts would be to our City from cuts to the CDBG program, and has been a national leader on this issue through his prominent position within the U.S. Conference of Mayors. This will be an interesting campaign, and Mayor Warren will bring a strong and respected voice to the Democratic primary. Setti Warren is a candidate that starts with low statewide name recognition and the need to raise some serious money quickly, but I think he is a candidate to watch.

    Your Honor,

    I listened to his Duval like speech. He has the all the Democratic talking points down good and said them like he was instructed, including calling Republicans Radical.

    He charges that Senator Brown voted with the Republican leadership 87% of the time. Duh. HE’S A REPUBLICAN.How does our federal delegation vote with Nancy and Harry? If he should win will he vote with the Republicans to show his independence? If he tries he will get a slap on the head.

    He sounds somewhat slimy to me. He seems to be abandoning his Mayor job faster than Romney did his Governorship.

    No, he’s just the same old, same old tax and spend guy.

    Jules,

    While I agree that party line voting does happen I do believe that in Massachusetts you can expect Mayor Warren to point out this factoid more often. Lets see how Mass voters respond to that, especially in a Presidential election year. Setti Warren is an outstanding public servant who has done a great job in Newton. I do believe he will be a candidate that people will gravitate towards as they get to know him and I am delighted that he has chosen to run.

    Your Honor,

    This is Massachusetts and one can never count out the superior number of Democrats.

    I don’t know how you can qualify the Mayor’s record when he has not been in office long enough to show all his stuff.
