UPDATE (Thursday @ 4:30pm ET): Yesterday was a whirlwind day! I'm so energized by the strong grassroots support I've received across Massachusetts, here on DailyKos, and across the Internet while launching my campaign for U.S. Senate.

Thanks to everyone who spent a few minutes with us in South Boston, New Bedford, Framingham, Worcester, and Springfield yesterday -- and to all of you -- for your encouragement and support. I look forward to checking in with you frequently as this campaign continues!

-- Elizabeth


I'm running!

Today, I am launching my campaign to represent the people of Massachusetts in the United States Senate. After listening to people all across our state who know that we can do better, folks who are frustrated like I am that Washington just doesn't get it, I'm running for the Senate so I can fight every day for Massachusetts families.

I hope you'll take a minute to watch this short video:

Washington gives some of the biggest corporations in the world special loopholes and tax breaks, while middle-class families and small businesses struggle.

That is wrong. Our hard-working families deserve someone who believes in them, someone who is going to stand up and fight for their interests.

That's why I'm running for the United States Senate.

I've fought all my life for working families, and I've stood up to some pretty powerful interests. Now those interests are sure to line up against our campaign — and that's why I'm asking you to help me build the grassroots support we need to beat them.

Please click here to watch my announcement video — and while you're there, be sure to sign up to join our campaign.

Then I hope you'll share my announcement video on Facebook or Twitter.

We have a chance to help rebuild America's middle class. We have a chance to put Washington on the side of families.

We can do this — together.

– Elizabeth

P.S. I'm kicking off my campaign today and tomorrow with stops all across Massachusetts, so I can't stick around here long. But I will check in from time to time today and tomorrow to respond to some of your questions and comments. Thanks!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
