The Associated Press (AP) is reporting that Massachusetts State Representative Tom Conroy is withdrawing his candidacy from the race for the Democratic nomination for U. S. Senate. A press conference is scheduled for later today. And then they’ll be four!
According to the report Rep Conroy:
… is ending his campaign because he has found it difficult to raise money in light of the popularity of democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard Law professor and consumer advocate.
The Wayland man says he plans on concentrating now on winning a fourth term in the state House of Representatives, but did not rule out a bid for higher office in the future.
In addition to Warren, the democratic field includes Middleton lawyer Marisa DeFranco, Newton software engineer Herb Robinson and Dover lawyer James C. King.
