Warren declines to endorse in Massachusetts special election

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) declined to offer an endorsement in the likely upcoming Massachusetts Senate special election, offering equal praise to all potential candidates in the Bay State delegation.

“Congressman [Edward] Markey [D] has been a great congressman. He has been a real leader, particularly on environmental issues, and he would make a great senator, but we’ll have to see what unfolds,” she told The Hill shortly after being sworn in to the Senate for the first time.

Markey is so far the only candidate to officially announce that he would run for Sen. John Kerry’s (D) seat if Kerry is confirmed as secretary of State, as expected.

That confirmation will set off a special-election fight later this year for his seat, and a number of prominent Massachusetts Democrats, including Reps. Michael Capuano and Stephen Lynch, have expressed interest in running, though neither has launched an official bid.

But national and Massachusetts Democrats lined up behind Markey shortly after he announced his bid, with Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet (D) endorsing him in what essentially marked the national Democratic Party throwing its weight behind Markey.
