The Herald reports that Geoff Diehl made the assertion during a debate with two other candidates who will also not be our next US senator, doubled down in the face of skepticism from both a moderator and his rivals, then, possibly realizing what that made him sound like, said he was just joshing.
The Globe reports that businessman John Kingston is looking at going for the Republican nomination for US Senate in 2018.
V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai of Cambridge, who sues Web sites for disputing his claim that he invented e-mail as a 14-year-old, announced at a right-wing gathering in Washington yesterday that he will run against Elizabeth Warren for US Senate in 2018.
Desperate for a Republican candidate with the slightest chance, the Herald bypasses Doug Bennett and tries to create a boomlet for Ann or Tagg Romney in this spring's Senate elections.
Now that everybody's favorite scooter-riding, sticker-plastering city-council candidate has jumped into the race for the Republican nomination for the Senate. Ladies and gentlemen: Doug Bennett for US Senate.
David Bernstein reports Ed Markey could face competition in his bid to replace John Kerry from Rabbi Jonah Pesner of Newton, senior vice president of the national Union of Reform Judaism.
You can call her Senator Warren now.
As more votes come in, WHDH is calling Elizabeth Warren the winner over incumbent Scott Brown. Among other things, Warren becomes the state's first woman senator.
David Gregory doesn't seem to realize he's not a candidate. He spent the first 15 minutes on the "character" issues that everybody in Massachusetts already is sick to death of. He decided that immigration is a more important issue than jobs. His toupee is too obvious.
John Carroll notes what he calls the "chin-strokerati" coverage of the nascent US Senate race by the Globe and other media outlets - they're only writing for other in-the-knowers, not the majority of us. For example, the Globe's constant references to the "now familiar" story of Warren's childhood in Okalahoma:
Ask ten people in the 351 cities and towns of Massachusetts about Elizabeth Warren and 1) 98% won’t know who she is; 2) 99.99% won't know the first thing about her.
OK, so Dems get predictably outraged about Scott Brown's public desire to not see Elizabeth Warren naked, but Republicans might want to find a better way to respond than praising Brown's decision to pose nude for a sex-advice rag as an example of an agonizing decision he courageously made.
Her announcement. Maybe now that she's officially in the race, she'll stop treating all of her campaign stops, such as her formal announcement at the Broadway T stop this morning, as state secrets (reporters were told in advance, of course, but only on the condition they not tell anybody).
