Sen. Elizabeth Warren today endorsed City Councilor Michelle Wu for mayor in the fall, and maybe also the spring, elections.
I’ve been proud to fight alongside Michelle over the last 7 years. She gets out and does the work that needs to be done to make a difference in people's lives. I’m thrilled to get on board the @wutrain and endorse her run for Mayor of Boston.
Warren does not live in Boston.
To date, only Councilor Andrea Campbell (Dorchester, Mattapan, Roslindale) has formally said she is also running for mayor, although the field could widen with Mayor Walsh set to become federal labor secretary. City Councilor and current Council President Kim Janey (Roxbury) will become mayor on Walsh's resignation.
If Walsh leaves before March 5, the city would have to a special election to fill his seat until the fall election, under a schedule set by the city charter, although City Councilor Ricardo Arroyo will seek permission from the state legislature to eliminate a potential special election.
