Rep. State Rep. Dan Winslow will form an exploratory committee to consider run for MA U.S. Senate

So, I guess he is in, sort of.

Who forms an exploratory committee in a 5 month race?

He is probably trying to rise his name recognition for some other race, but he can be dangerous if ignored.

Republican State Rep. Daniel Winslow will form an exploratory committee to consider running for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat that was vacated by newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Winslow is the first Republican to officially take steps toward entering the race, after a number of higher profile Republicans declined to run. Gabriel Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, is also still considering a run.

Winslow said in a statement that he is forming the committee to “test the waters” for a U.S. Senate run. “We need to fix a broken Washington where progress is being hampered by partisan gridlock,” Winslow said. “If we continue to elect the same Washington politicians, we can not expect different results.

1. He could be a strong candidate, but he will just be more of

the partisan gridlock. He will be lock and step with the Republicants. I laugh when Repuplicants run on the I'm the gridlock savior. He is also from the same house district the Brown was in before he became a state senator. In other words, he is my rep. I also did jury duty in his court when he was a judge. He shouldn't be dismissed, but still a longshot to defeat a dem candidate.

2. The lack of enthusiasm on the dark slde is stunning.

Humpty-Dumpty Brown was the only egg in their basket.
