NEW: State Rep. Winslow To Explore GOP Senate Run

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

 

Republican state Representative Dan Winslow of Norfolk announced on Tuesday that he will form an exploratory committee to look into a run in the Senate special election to fill John Kerry's vacant seat.

“Today I’m taking the necessary steps to form an exploratory committee to test the waters for the U.S. Senate. We need to fix a broken Washington where progress is being hampered by partisan gridlock. If we continue to elect the same Washington politicians, we can not expect different results,” Winslow said in a statement.

“The people of Massachusetts and all Americans deserve solutions from their elected officials. Washington needs to focus on problem solving and implement ideas that will create jobs and grow our economy.”

Winslow, a former judge in the Commonwealth, had said he would weigh run for the seat last weekend.

A number of high profile Bay State Republicans followed former Senator Scott Brown in declining to run in the Senate contest over the past few days, leaving many party members wondering who would step up.

U.S. Representatives Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch have thrown their hats in the ring on the Democratic side for a chance at succeeding Kerry.
