Council for a Livable World today announced its endorsement of consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren for Senate from Massachusetts.
Warren is running for the seat now held by Republican Senator Scott Brown.
Council president Gary Collins called Warren: “intelligent, articulate and unwavering in her commitment to strong principles.”
Collins added “In a few short weeks Warren has proved to be a nimble candidate who is attracting support in Massachusetts and around the country.”
Ira Lechner, Council’s chairman, pointed out that Warren faces candidates who have a strong background on national security issues, Alan Khazei, City Year founder and 2010 Senate candidate endorsed then by Council for a Livable World, and State Representative Thomas Conroy.
Lechner said that Massachusetts is once again presenting a list of excellent candidates. He noted while both Khazei and Conroy are quality candidates, they trail far behind Warren in primary election polls and Brown in the general election polls.
He added “we are excited to get involved early in a campaign that has impressed voters in Massachusetts and supporters around the country.”
