[RICHARD] Republicans Launch an Offensive to Unseat Warren

The shrieking sound from the Massachusetts section of the U.S. Senate Chambers has petered out just a bit in recent weeks.  Could it be that Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren has lost her voice?  Perhaps Warren has come to understand that Massachusetts residents expect more from their senior senator than Trump bashing. The “Henny Penny” routine wears thin after a while and even here in progressive Massachusetts people want to hear solutions to  problems they face.

Senator Warren faces re-election next year and should not take for granted the mood of the voters.  A recent WBUR poll indicates that while Warren still enjoys more than 50 percent support, 46 percent of respondents felt they might like to replace her with someone else.  Warren was shrill during the national election cycle last Fall and relentless in her criticism of the new administration ever since.  Many traditional Democrats tell me they feel she has done a poor job in addressing the issues they care about.

Warren has a war chest totaling more than 5 million dollars already and has had little trouble raising cash.  Whoever the eventual Republican challenger is will face a formidable task in raising funds to properly take her on next year.

A new Republican “super PAC” has been launched with the goal of raising 10 million dollars to defeat Warren.  The Deal Her Out PAC was founded by Marty Lamb, who helped lead the successful Repeal The Gas Tax Hike campaign and former Trump Campaign operative Bonnie Johnson.

While the Republican field has yet to fully form for next year’s election, State Representative Geoff Diehl has been extremely active in exploring the possibility of a run.  Diehl, who served as Co-Massachusetts Campaign Chair for the Trump campaign offers the promise of change whose ideas are certainly worthy of your attention.

A special reception is being held in honor of Representative Geoff Diehl as a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

The event will be held on Wednesday, June 7, from 6 to 8 pm at F1 Boston.

Former New England Patriot Fred Smerlas will attend as a special guest.
