Massie Ends Mass. Senate Campaign

As Elizabeth Warren continues to get national attention for her Senate campaign, the Democratic field in Massachusetts is shrinking.

Non-profit executive Bob Massie officially put an end to his Senate campaign Friday morning, just a week after another Democrat, Newton Mayor Setti Warren, ended his own bid.

"Today I am withdrawing from the race for the Democratic nomination for the United States Senate," Massie told supporters Thursday evening. "I am doing so because the momentum of the race has shifted so profoundly that I can no longer see a path for me to win the primary and defeat Scott Brown."

Both Massie and Setti Warren struggled to raise money and since Elizabeth Warren officially entered the race in mid-September, the momentum in the race has shifted dramatically in her favor. The clear Democratic frontrunner, Elizabeth Warren won rave reviews for her performance at the first Democratic debate earlier this week.
