Potential Brown Challengers Speak Out

March 1, 2011

On the heels of a Monday National Journal story by my colleague Jim O'Sullivan in which Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) identifies a few potential Democratic challengers to Sen. Scott Brown (R) he's spoken with, a couple of the possible candidates have come forward to confirm their interest in the race.

Newton Mayor Setti Warren (D) says he's considering a run and Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll (D) also confirmed she's looking at the race.

"I am not yet ready to announce an official decision on entering the race. But in the final analysis, if I believe I can do a better job for Massachusetts, I'll put my name on the ballot," Warren told the State House News Service.

Though Patrick told National Journal he had not been actively recruiting challengers for Brown, he said he has spoken with four potential candidates -- City Year founder Alan Khazei, Democratic activist Robert Massie, Warren, and Driscoll.

"Kim is not in; she has not made up her mind, but I know she's thinking about it seriously. But Alan and Bob and Setti are in, for sure," Patrick told National Journal. He also said that that former finance executive and Romney aide Robert Pozen, who has said he will run for Senate as a Democrat if the party asks him, had been trying to get in touch.

"I haven't talked to Bob. We've traded phone calls, but I haven't talked to him," Patrick said. Another potential Democratic candidate, Rep. Michael Capuano, had not indicated to him whether he had decided to run, Patrick said.

Massie is already in the race, while Khazei has previously said he's considering a run.
