Former Romney legal counsel launches Mass. Senate campaign

By Alexandra Jaffe - 02/07/13 06:13 PM ET

State Rep. Dan Winslow (R ) announced Thursday he will seek the Republican nomination in the special election to replace former Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) becoming the first GOP candidate to formally enter the race.

"As a native of Western Massachusetts, a hardworking middle class family, and as an experienced problem solver, I believe that the next two years will be our last, best opportunity to avoid the tipping point of a runaway deficit and crushing federal debt," Winslow said in a release.

An attorney, Winslow has served in the Massachusetts state legislature since 2011.

From 2001-2005, he served as then-Gov. Mitt Romney's chief legal counsel, which Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh singled out in an statement released earlier this week, after Winslow indicated his interest in the race.

3. State Rep. 'eh. So There are Conservative Districts in MA

If I were the Dems there I'd hammer that Romney connection hard. Especially since the state clearly has no love of Romney. He only managed a 67% rating from the NRA but 95% from Gun Owners' Action League Positions on Gun Rights (whatever that is). But he's still a Republican - his policy positions include cutting welfare and cutting taxes on corporations. Typical.

4. Oh well then, there you go.

That Romney connection should make him a shoe-in.
